Getting started with Firebug
By Dave Winer on Wednesday, July 07, 2010 at 9:46 AM.

I'm trying to figure out where the blank space is coming from in the layout of the home page.  permalink

People suggested using Firebug, so I installed it, and it looks great, but I have a basic question to get started. permalink

Here's a screen shot. What does the lime-green shading signify? permalink

That's the bit I want to nuke. I can't tell where it comes from.  permalink

Update: Thanks for all the help -- I figured out what to do not only with the extra vertical space but with the help of Firebug, I now understand why text on the index pages was indented under the headings. I didn't want it indented. So I created a new class "showForIndexPage" and use it in place of "show" on the index pages. It has much more modest horizontal padding.  permalink

Things are starting to line up the way I want them to. :-) permalink
