Using Mozilla Firefox as an XML Syntax Checker
This section provides a tutorial example on how to use Mozilla Firefox as an XML file syntax checker. If there are syntax errors in an XML file, Firefox will stop displaying the XML file at the first error location.

XML Parsing Error: mismatched tag. Expected: </name>. Location: file:///C:/herong/xml/incorrect.xml Line Number 8, Column 32: <name is_acronym="true">XML</Name> -------------------------------^
Again Firefox behaved almost in the same way as Chrome, showing only the first error with the line number and the column number,
as shown in the picture below:
