The DOM Inspector extension does not appear to be working in T/Bird 58b. There are also no chrome inspecting 'Web Dev' tools in T/Bird 58b, as there are in Firefox (poor, as they may be).

As can be imagined, the two together make it pretty difficult to develop extensions and themes for Thunderbird. If you're dropping that side then say so and we can all go home, if not, a working DOM Inspector would be good to have. :)

Infocatcher got DOM Inspector working in Firefox 57.

Maybe that version works in Thunderbird 58 as well.

Thanks, doesn't seem like it so far, but I'll study it again tomorrow.

I like how you tell me after I've done the theme that there was a DOM Inspector for 57 all along. :P -

Hehe :twisted:

I believe these were the only changes...

* chrome\inspector\content\inspector\jsutil\system\PrefUtils.js (replace nsIPrefBranch2)
* chrome\inspector\content\inspector\viewers\dom\dom.js (change let to var in for loop init)

Update - I've got the DOMi to work in T/Bird 58!

I was reading that guide, I haven't followed this T/Bird stuff for a while and didn't realise so many extensions were bust by T/Bird 57+.

I've got off lucky, only very minor breakers I've been fixing.

How can I get the DOM inspector working with Thunderbird 58?

[edit: It's possible to use the new built-in "Developer Toolbox" to inspect the DOM. So that's a solution. Still, I'd like to use the DOM inspector addon since that's what I'm used to.]

If someone wants to host 2.17.2 I can provide it. Building it is currently disabled in SeaMonkey because we want to do l10n builds and it is broken in comm-central with 59/2.56+

Does the "Blink Element" feature work for you?
It no longer works here in TB 58 and 59 .

I can host it, no problem.

The previous one has been hosted for a while now - viewtopic.php?p=14759025#p14759025
