Named Anchors

This extension adds a new tab to Page Info with information about the named anchors in the current document.


It looks like due to a Firefox bug it is not possible to drag & drop URL's from the Page Info window when you are running Windows. Miha Filej was so kind to create a bugzilla bug report about this (non-) behaviour, see bug #268738.
