The URL of the page doesn't appear in the file menu > Inspect a Window. Opening the DomI through the keyboard short cut previously opened the DomI with the html page in the front most window/tab. No longer. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. load DomI (from menu or keyboard shortcut) 2. File menu > Inspect a window 3. Actual Results: only chrome is accessible, not an html document. Expected Results: 1. if opened via the keyboard shortcut, open the DomI with the html doc from the front most window/tab to inspect. 2. make that same url (html doc) available form the file menu.

I'm not sure if it is intended or not that you have to c&p the url into the DomI locationbar ? ->NEW

WFM on windows, maybe mac-only?
Using this build Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050604 Firefox/1.0+ ID:2005060416 After launching Firefox, and loading an HTML doc, launching the DomI with the keyboard shortcut displayed the document tree for the html doc (as expected). However, after using Firefox for a while, using multiple tabs, normal browsing session, and then attempting to inspect a window with the DomI (using the keyboard shortcut) stopped working, the DomI simply opened a blank window. In any case, the URL (in the frontmost window/tab) was not available for inspection form the menu: file > Inspect a window. It used to be accessible from there, I'm not sure however when that behaviour changed, as I rarely use this.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050608 Firefox/1.0+ Recent Pacifica-trunk also shows just blank in the DOMInspector window on Win98SE. This bug may affect not only Mac but also old Windows.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050608 Firefox/1.0+ CTRL+SHIFT+I : works for me (inspecting the inspector : document.defaultView.arguments == "[object XPCNativeWrapper [object HTMLDocument]]") Tools -> DOM Inspector : fails (inspecting the inspector : document.defaultView.arguments is empty)
The menu item used to call the InspectPage command: http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsblame.cgi?file=mozilla/browser/extensions/inspector/content/tasksOverlay.xul&rev=&cvsroot=/cvsroot&mark=42#40 The keyboard shortcut still does this. The menu item now calls the Inspector command: http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsblame.cgi?file=mozilla/extensions/inspector/resources/content/tasksOverlay-ff.xul&mark=40#38
OS: MacOS X → All
Hardware: Macintosh → All
Summary: Impossible to inspect the content of a window (html page). → Tools - DOM Inspector doesn't inspect the current page anymore, Ctrl+Shift+I works
