How to view the page source in a new tab using Firefox

With the very helpful Firefox addon Source Viewer Tab, you can view a pages source code in a new tab, rather than a new window (which is the annoying default).

  1. Source Viewer Tab installs as all other Firefox plugins – and you’ll need to restart Firefox for it to start working. Once you have, select View -> Page Source as you normally would..

  3. And instead of opening in a new window, the source will be displayed in a new tab.

  5. If you highlight a section of a web page, then right click and select View Selection Source..

  7. That selections source will be displayed – but again – in a new tab instead of a new window.
