Firebug Menu

The top bar menu of Firebug has a number of items: a firebug icon, an inspect icon, Console, HTML, CSS, Script, Dom and Net. You will not use all of these most of the time and some of them possibly never. But we will describe briefly what they all do. Some of them, like Console, open a blank screen by default and you need to turn on the process that it will do. You do this by right-clicking the Firebug icon in the status bar at the bottom of your browser and selecting "Enable all panels".
