I am trying to work with the Selenium IDE on Firefox. I was wondering does anyone know a way to get an element's/widget's coordinates directly from the IDE? Is there an add-on or some option that already exists? At the moment it is not providing me with enough information for each thing I click on.

You can use Web Developer, which is an Add-on of firefox.

After installation, perform following:

  1. Click on Miscellaneous and select Display Line Guides

  2. Click on Add Horizontal Line Guide button to add the horizontal line to get the Y Coordinate of Element and Click on Add Vertical Line Guide button to add Vertical line to get the X coordinate of Element

  3. scroll horizontal/vertical line such that the element's position comes to the intersection of the lines.

  4. Select Lines to see the coordinates just right to the Add Vertical Line Guide button
