I'm getting more and more annoyed by the speed of firefox. Mainly in Gdocs or wordpress admin editors.
So I turned off extensions to speed it up. After trying a few combination I discovered that firebug is the biggest source of slowdown. Being a web-developer I want to switch to the build in FF inspector.


  1. Is there a way to make the ff inspector collapse both the HTML(dom tree) and the style editor when I inspect an element or press ctrl+shift+I?
  2. Is there a way to keep it collapsed out on refresh (if I collapsed it before)?

If you don't want Firebug to run in the background, slowing down sites, you can clear the activation list. See: – iglvzx May 5 '12 at 23:38
I see, also shift+F12 does that. I'll keep it as an backup solution. But I'd prefer to quit firebug. – janw May 6 '12 at 7:54
You might get more responses to your question if your question were more specific than "Firefox inspector." You list two questions in your description--why not make one of them your question instead of "firefox inspector"? – Jon Sep 5 '14 at 17:53
True, but itś not relevent anymore. Forgot that at one point the ispector was split like this. – janw Sep 5 '14 at 22:35
