The WordPress Support Forum get questions every day for help on how to tweak this or that part and piece on user's WordPress Themes. Do you want to know the secret behind successful editing and designing of your WordPress Theme?
Isn't Firefox just an Internet browser? Yes, it is, but it is also so much more.
Why Aren't You Using Firefox?
Let's get something out of the way first. If you are still using Microsoft Internet Explorer -- fine. It's good enough for most website viewing and browsing. But if you want to do more, if you want control over your browsing options, if you want the ability to view multiple pages at the same time without clogging up your desktop, if you want fingertip access and control to a wide variety of functions and features that make Internet browsing a delight, then install Firefox.
You can install Firefox on a computer with Internet Explorer also installed. It won't hurt either of them. They will run side-by-side without problem. You will have a choice to make one of them the "default" browser, and then change that later. It's up to you. But if you want to take advantage of the powerful features that will help you troubleshoot and tweak your website style sheet or WordPress Theme, then add Firefox to your web tools.
Besides, Firefox is free to download, install, and use. That's right -- FREE.
Firefox Web Developer Tools
You do not have to post your CSS styles or XHMTL code on the WordPress Support Forum to help the other members help you solve your CSS or Theme problem. From the link to your website or the page in question, most are using Firefox with the Web Developer Extension installed. With these same tools, they can view your source files and style sheet and run the page through the validation checkers to track down and identify your problem, and often quickly come up with a solution. Why not use what the "pros" use?
With Firefox installed, there are a variety of powerful add-on features called extensions that will help you design your website or WordPress Theme. It doesn't matter if you are trying to tweak the finest little detail, or shifting your sidebar from one side of the page to the other -- these act like some of the most expensive HTML WYSIWYG web page editors.
Firefox Web Developer Extension is packed with the features you need to edit your WordPress Theme. There is a lot of documentation to describe all that it does, but here are just a few highlights.
