Firefox show window / element width – Firebug and the Layout tab

In Chrome’s developer tools is was easy to see the width of a browser window. With developer tools open, grab to lower right corner and shrink the window. In the upper-right the size of the window shows up. That makes working with Media Queries so much easier.

I use Firefox so often and wanted the same feature. I found what I needed in firebug and this article helped me.

In the layout table as you inspect an element it’s size will show in the Layout tab.

I hope this helps someone else out there…


False Positive – Vipre threat ID 5230363

We have a fair amount of clients running Vipre anti-virus and we received a bunch of warnings this morning that over 6 of our clients were infected with a “Trojan Downloader”. Vipre found it and quarantined it, but we wanted to make sure.

It shows up as “Trojan-Downloader.JS.Nemucod.dc (v)”. We contacted Vipre and they confirmed it was a false positive. They said a new definition will be out later today (3.22.2016).


Microsoft says their software can handle this attack. Here is their write-up on this issue.

I hope this helps someone else out there….
