Firefox: Open Page Source in Notepad

If you want to view page source of a website, Firefox opens it in the internal viewer. Though this viewer is great with the color coding, you might want to edit the document or want to open it in an external viewer like dreamsweaver, frontpage, etc. For this you have to change the config entries.

Open about:config, go to the key
view_source.editor.external, set it to true.

Next go to the key view_source.editor.path, give your program path there. For notepad, it is C:\Windows\Notepad.exe.

From now it will be opened in your favorite editor.
