Element Hiding Helper: "View source" command doesn't show text nodes

Element Hiding Helper

How to reproduce

  1. Select a text paragraph.
  2. Press V to view source in tooltip.

Observed behaviour

Only <p /> is displayed in tooltip, not the text content.

Expected behaviour

The tooltip should display the entire HTML code, including text.


This regressed when Element Hiding Helper was turned into a restartless extension in January 2012 - an unrelated change made the loop skip non-element children.

  • Cc DrainElephant added

Replying to an issue won't get you on the Cc list, you actually need to change the Cc field.
