Also adding some more context about the bug because it can be difficult to know which feature this is about.

To reproduce the bug you need to enable the "rulers" Toolbox button.

  • open DevTools
  • go to DevTools settings
  • in Available Toolbox Buttons, check "Toggle rulers for the page"

This will add a rulers icon in the top right of the toolbox.

  • click on the rulers icon
  • the page dimension should now be displayed in the top right corner of the window

(will attach a screenshot as well)

Changes the format of dimensions in inspector to (Y - X) from (X - Y)
