Hello:

I can't seem to inspect these modal popups either in chrome developer tools or in firebug. I am attaching the jpegs. So I try to highlight the modal popups but nothing happens.

I have figured out where this code is coming from, but the javascript doesn't seem to be writing the html that is in the border of the popup and on firefox the popup has no border.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,
seeker

Looks like you highlighted the link and not the modal.  I'm confused as to your actual question though.  What are you trying to do?

The modal is not actually part of the page, so I don't think you can inspect it with page tools.  I'm not sure it is even it is in the DOM, because it generates dynamically from javascript as a transient.  You probable can get to it in IE because of the way IE hooks to the OS.

You should be able to see it by using the "Inspect Element" feature and probably not by view source.   You may have to hover around while inspecting to get to the right place.  

What is it you are looking for?

Hi Thanks for the responses. So I am trying to modify the text on the chrome above the pop-up. It appears that in firefox there is no chrome surrounding the pop-up so i need to create one there with another and different text message above the text in the pop-up.

It appears that this text is native to the various browsers, and they cannot be modified, or can they?

Thanks again for your help.

I suppose you could change it by downloading the browser source code and modifying it, but you might have a problem convincing your users to use your custom version.  I won't say it is not possible because given unlimited time and unlimited funding anything is possible.
