Development Mode not working - pls help!

Hi, I'm new to the board and to Salesforce.  I started building some Visualforce pages controlled by a custom controller, and I'm not able to get the Page Editor working.  I need it for debugging since I'm still really unsure of the syntax.  I did some searching through the discussion board and didn't find anything pertaining to my problem.

 

I have Development Mode turned on for my user settings, and I've also set my URL to apex:

https://mydomain.xxx.cs3.force.com/apex/my_page

 

I realized that I should be seeing a split screen and/or a Page Editor button at the bottom of the screen, but I see neither.  I tried it in Firefox and Chrome in both Windows and Linux.  

 

I have a feeling it's a security issue because I get a Authorization Required  login page when I know there is an error with the page.  What am I doing wrong here?  Please help!  I'm out of ideas on this.  Thanks in advance.

I can tell by the force.com URL that you're in a Site. If you want to use developer mode, you'll need to use it from within the salesforce app. 

 

Go to https://cs3.salesforce.com/apex/my_page and see if that works.
