Edit CSS in Firefox

Quick tip if you haven’t come across this before. There is an excellent web development extension available for Firefox called Edit CSS. Quite simply, it allows you to view all style sheets for the current page in the sidebar, make edits and see the result as you type. The amount of time this saves is amazing.

A problem with many firefox extensions is that they break in current and mac builds, and this is the case here. The useful option to save the css once edited doesn’t work. Even with this bug, its a worthwhile download.

Update 11.02.04: All thats needed to make Edit CSS work fully, is the jslib extension. Now I can save edited styles, or load new ones. Thanks to John for pointing this out.

Perfect for deciding on that new colour scheme… ;o)
