How to Enable Safari Debug Menu in Mac OS X
Step #1. In almost every guide, we ask you to launch some or the other app in the first step. But here the things are different; if you have Safari opened then you’ll have to quit it first.
Step #2. Now launch the Terminal from Spotlight.
Step #3. Type in the following command exactly as it is given, better copy and paste it.
defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeInternalDebugMenu 1
Step #4. Now hit Enter to execute the command.
Step #5. You can now launch Safari and you’ll see a new menu “Debug” listed.
Step #6. This is an optional step, in case you wish to disable Debug menu. Simply, copy paste the following command again in the Terminal.
defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeInternalDebugMenu 0
