In Firebug, when editing some css property, I can press up and down to cycle through all the possible values.

So if I'm editing the "color" property, and I press up/down, it will cycle through "red", "green", "blue", etc. Very convenient.

Is this possible in Firefox's built-in devtools?

  • Ctrl+Shift+i to open Firefox's devtools. I can scroll through different hex values for a background color property. Is this what you mean? – MC10 Dec 19 '15 at 7:58
  • @MC10 Maybe color was a bad example. If I use "display" or "font-weight" or something else, in Firebug, it'll cycle through all possible values. In the FF devtools it does not. Sometimes it does, but only the "-moz-" values, nothing else. – h bob Dec 19 '15 at 11:59
  • I can't either, only colors work for me. – MC10 Dec 23 '15 at 12:37
  • @MC10 Well then I guess it isn't possible, yet. If you add that as an answer, I'll accept it. – h bob Dec 23 '15 at 14:44

In the latest version Firefox 49 it is definitive possible: css value choice in FF49 dev tools

With the arrow keys you can shuffle through allowed values, but also increase/decrease lengths.
