I finally had Netflix play at higher resolutions with a native elementary OS browser (specifically Firefox). I am using an updated version of the Netflix 1080p add-on in Firefox and it works flawlessly in my computer (Netflix 1080p).

However, I want to see further details of the streaming quality during playback. With Windows (either through their UWP app or browsers), I can easily do this by pressing (Ctrl + Alt + Shift + D) during playback. However, this does not work with any browsers I have in elementary OS. Is there an equivalent combination for Elementary OS for the said shortcut using the Super key?

  • There's a way to access the debug menu from the hamburger menu, it's under the web developer. Try as I might, I can't get the proscribed CTRL SHIIFT Z to open it, but it will close it and it is able to be opened with the mouse. Is that the debugger you speak of?

  • No that's not it. I was looking for the "Stats for nerds" equivalent for Netflix. Nov 18, 2020 at 2:25
  • Ah, in that case I know of no such thing for Elementary. Maybe someone will come along that knows. This SE site is still in beta and doesn't get a lot of traffic, so be patient and someone may come along that knows.

Ctrl + Alt + Shift + Q is working fine to me. Firefox 83 and Netflix 1080p extension.

  • Sadly, even after updating Firefox, the window still wouldn't appear. Both Ctrl + Alt + Shift + Q and Ctrl + Alt + Shift + D doen't work. Nov 27, 2020 at 3:02
