Code


  function printStructure(root) {
      var document;
      if(typeof(root) === 'undefined') {
          if('document' in this._workContext) {
              document = this._workContext.document;
              root = this._workContext.document.documentElement;
          } else
              throw new Error('Need a starting point.');
      } else {
          document = root.ownerDocument;
      }

      var walker = document.createTreeWalker(
          root,
          Ci.nsIDOMNodeFilter.SHOW_ELEMENT,
          { acceptNode: function(node) Ci.nsIDOMNodeFilter.FILTER_ACCEPT },
          false);

      while(walker.nextNode()) {
          let node = walker.currentNode;

          let s = '';
          switch(node.tagName) {
          case 'script':
              s += '[src="' + node.getAttribute('src') + '"]'
              break;
          case 'menuitem':
          case 'button':
              s += '[label="' + node.getAttribute('label') + '"]'
              break;
          case 'label':
              s += '[value="' + node.getAttribute('value') + '"]'
              break;
          default:
              if(node.hasAttribute('id'))
                  s += '#' + node.getAttribute('id');
          }

          let path = [];
          while(node.parentNode) {
              path.unshift(node);
              node = node.parentNode;
          }

          s = path.map(function(n) n.nodeName).join('/') + s;
          this.print(s);
      }
  }
