HTTP Sniffer extension

Hi folks,

I'm looking for a tool used to size the HTML pages sent
by an http server to a browser, aka HTTP sniffer. I found
some of them on the net but none is meeting my requirements.

So, I found it was possible to develop its own Mozilla/Firebird
extensions, and such a plugin should be a good candidate in doing
the job. Ideally, I'd like Mozilla+extension behave like that:

- type an URL in the URL bar and load the page
- when loading is complete, display overall page size
display a grid for each indivual page component like graphics,
JavaScript, ...
- in case of HTTP compression, display beforehand page size and compression
ratio, as well as page size after decompression
- ...

It should be easy to do this using an extension (or a plug-in).

I've searched in the extension list but none seems to do that. So,
where is the extension documentation and how to begin?

Thanks for your help.
