I am pleased to announce AInspector Sidebar 1.1.1 extension for Firefox is now available.

An important feature of release 1.1.1 is fixing the “Inspect Element” feature that was broken by an undocumented change in a Firefox.
The Inspect Element button now works as expected.

Mozilla Add-ons page:


Additional changes in AInspector Sidebar 1.1 include updating the evaluation library to OpenAjax Version 1.1, the following is a summary:
1.       HTML Element Rule Changes
