    Smile Viewing Firefox HTTP traffic?


    Greetings,

    I would like to monitor the http traffic which is the outcome of using Firefox. Is it possible to monitor the http traffic which is attributed to a browser?

    I am "guessing" that this info might be directed to some temporary location, or that it can be invoked to do so via a configuration.

    Thanks in advance your your help!

    Cheers,

    Steven

    You can take network packet traces with an application called Ethereal, then filter the output for the HTTP protocol.

    Ethereal should be available through your favourite package manager.
