Hi, I have an improvement suggestion for the console in the developer tools. It essentially concerns a huge block of unused space that I regularly find when debugging applications (see attachment).

Making the block with the console output broader and make it use that free space will in my opinion result in a greater DX, since I can see more data at first glance.

Thanks for your attention. And thanks for all the love and work you put into developing firefox (and other products).

Kind regards

Hi Honza,

thanks for pointing this out. This issue has already been reported 5 years ago, wow. I truly wonder why this hasn't been fixed (or improved). I find this sad, as I really like what I know about mozilla and wish them (or you) to be able to provide optimal products.

On the other hand, the bug report is not very sensitive and more pressure never leads to better outcomes (the contrary).

Maybe I can even help fix this issue, haha.

Have a great day and thanks again for the hint.
