Just enable Show Developer Menu in Safari's Preferences, Advanced tab.
It will enable the option Inspect Element when you right click the page. You can also start it with Command+Option+I.
You can get more info about this option in Safari for Developers - Tools and Safari Web Inspector Guide: The Develop Menu.
More than likely, you've used the Inspection Tool and have an element highlighted.
The $0–$4 variables contain the current and previous selected nodes from the Elements Tree Hierarchy.
Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari - If you have an element currently selected in your "Elements" tab, you can ...
I can't understand if your app do a XmlHTTPRequest.
Anyway... in the resource section (red circle in the image) you can find all the information about a request, even its response.
Hope this will help you! :)
PS: Sorry, my GUI is in italian, but you will understand as well
This indeed looks to be a bug.
You can watch all file access on your system with the opensnoop command. This requires root access - run it, then try hitting the download button - you'll see no access from Safari.
Time to hit Feedback Assistant and tell them what's going on!
The earlier comment is a good workaround - once the image is displayed, just hit ...
Right-click an element, then choose Inspect Element. This opens the developer tools and selects the element in the DOM. This can be scripted with Automator/Keyboard Maestro/etc for activation with a keyboard shortcut if you wish.
I found this app, but not sure how extensive is it compared to a traditional web inspector

Let me know if you've found an alternative or something
I have been using MIHTool: https://www.mihtool.com/ - It’s not quite as good as being on Chrome on a Desktop but it gets some of the job done!
I also use Inspect Browser
I also have experienced this problem. After doing some research I finally manage to solve the problem.
Backup and remove ~/Library/WebKit/com.apple.Safari folder.
A problem should disappear after that operation. Enjoy :D
Use Option + up or down arrow, the list of inspector shortcut can be found here. https://developer.apple.com/library/content/documentation/AppleApplications/Conceptual/Safari_Developer_Guide/KeyboardShortcuts/KeyboardShortcuts.html
Get a copy of Parallels or VMware Fusion. Set up a virtual machine and install Mavericks on it. You will then have all the benefits of running Safari 7 in the original environment without having to dust the hardware.
I have Fusion, and virtual machines back to 10.5 Leopard. Also have Windows back to W98, and DOS 6 just for Duke Nukem in all it's ...
Silverlight is a plug in that draws all content outside the DOM so any normal web tools to introspect how a page loads will fail (and in this case, fail without much grace).
I have just fixed precisely the same problem on a site. Its annoying when a debugger chokes so it can't help you find the problem!
My problem was caused by a stray class making its way into a style.
<div style="background: #ffb380; padding-bottom:30px; width:300px; text-center;">
Removing the text-center fixed the problem and web-inspector loads ...
Web Inspector doesn't show network traffic for legacy plug-ins. It is simply not reported to the user interface, which is why you can't see it.
