Hi -
I'm trying to debug a website with safari and I'd like to use the webkit web inspector. I have the option "use webkit web inspector" checked under the "Develop" menu, however the web inspector that comes up essentially has a blank screen:

The non-webkit web inspector comes up fine:

I'm on safari 5 still not with lion.  So it looks like others with safari 6 are having the same issue and apparently there are 2 web inspectors.    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4139004?start=0&tstart=0

It looks like you need to go to the Developer menu and check/uncheck some options.

Yes there are 2 web inspectors. There's the webkit inspector (looks the same as the one in chrome) and there is the safari 'flavored' inspector. I'm having a separate problem with the safari inspector in that it is breaking on exceptions and I want to turn that behavior off, but I can't figure out where to do it. I know how to do it in the webkit inspector, but I'm having this other blank screen issue.

Hopefully somebody with safari 6 can help you. I did see where some people downloaded a nightly build and fixed the issue.  http://nightly.webkit.org/
