I'm looking for a Firefox extension I've recently read of that makes scaffolding web sites easy. It seemed to be a combination of Firebug and ColorZilla enabling to modify source of existing sites on the fly making it ideal to scaffold. It seemed to be rather new but unfortunaltey I couldn't find it googling.

Thanks for the help!

What does "scaffolding web sites" mean? – Snark Nov 14 '09 at 20:42
Are you looking for something like the snippet editor in safari?… – dlamblin Nov 15 '09 at 8:58

There is an experimental add-on called Firefox Add-on Kit "Matchfox", described as:

The best scaffold generator for Firefox add-on developers. You can get started your development in 5 minutes.

This scaffold includes an OR mapper for sqlite, a library for the Preference system, and a library for localized strings. Detailed reference manuals are also included.

Does this help?

If you are developing a Firefox Add-On Scaffold
There is Firefox/Thunderbird Extension Wizard,
This is like the Matchfox extension harrymc has already suggested.

Point is, all these are talking about building firefox extensions.
And, you seem to be looking for something that will scaffold web-sites.

Perhaps you're looking for something like Edit Page.
