Node Highlighting

Element hiding and some snippets can hide content on a page. Debugging such filters can prove tricky, since it's easy to lose track of hidden elements.

Highlight mode modifies the behavior of hiding filters so that they highlight targeted elements instead of hiding them altogether.

Enable highlight mode

Follow these steps to enable highlight mode:

  1. Open the settings page of an extension.

  2. Open the developer console.

  3. Enter and run the following command:

browser.runtime.sendMessage({type: "prefs.set", key: "elemhide_debug", value: true});

Highlight mode is now enabled.

To disable highlight mode, change the value property to false in the previous command and run it again.
