In Firefox, (on normal pages) there is "Page info" in the context menu. It lists images on ("embedded"?) the page along with their full URLs. But other "external" files are not listed.

Can I view a list of other resources, all "page requisites" (as wget calls them), like css files and javascript files, with their full URLs?

EDIT without parsing the source code with my eyes.


This can be done with the Firebug add-on. If you activate Firebug, click the Net tab and refresh the page it should show requests for the main page and all associated resources. Note that you may sometimes need to hold down Shift when refreshing to ensure that it doesn't use the cache.

  • will this show failed (404, etc.) requests? – n611x007 Mar 18 '13 at 14:18

    It should do yes. The Status column will show '404 Not Found' etc. instead of '200 OK' and it will be highlighted red. – James P Mar 18 '13 at 14:22

One other option would be to use Fiddler. It's a third party program that logs all HTTP(S) traffic between your computer and the Internet. There is a Firefox add-on called FiddlerHook which makes using Fiddler with Firefox easier.

  • maybe kind of an overkill here, but this is something I was hoping for for a long time! this way I can monitor what my addons are doing (reporting home, etc.) – n611x007 Mar 18 '13 at 14:54
  • Yes overkill for your original question but just another option. – Brad Patton Mar 18 '13 at 15:02
