Firebug 1.5 and Firefox 3.6

… or, which version of Firebug should I use with Firefox 3.6, aka Namoroka? We’re in a bit of a funny place with Firebug and Firefox 3.6. The Firebug 1.5 line is currently running better on Firefox 3.7 (trunk, mozilla-central) than it is on the 1.9.2 branch (Firefox 3.6, aka Namoroka). Fallout from a couple [...]


Firebug Test Automation Phase 1 complete

Yesterday afternoon I posted a somewhat cryptic tweet: Orange ftw. Blog post to follow. http://twitpic.com/gcizx Well, here’s the blog post. That little orange box is the first successful run of Firebug’s FBTest test automation tool through buildbot. It’s currently posting to the MozillaTest Tinderbox. This is phase 1. We’re currently running Firebug’s 1.5 branch out [...]


The Road to Firebug 1.4

It’s been a long haul but Firebug 1.4.0 is finally out the door. Honza wrote a good introduction to the new activation model awhile back and you may find it useful to understand the differences between activation mechanisms in 1.3 and 1.4. JJB writes: “Firebug 1.4 is a true community achievement. We have had contributions [...]


Firebug 1.4.0b1 Limited Release on AMO

Today we’ve pushed Firebug 1.4.0b1 (same as 1.4.0a31) to addons.mozilla.org. Currently, we’ve only turned it on for users of 3.5b4 and later, but this version is fully-compatible with Firefox 3.0 as well. Users of Firefox 3.0 who want to try out Firebug 1.4 should download it from getfirebug.com/releases/firebug/1.4 or disable version checking on AMO. When [...]


Firebug Testday Results

Thanks to everybody who showed up last Friday and ran some Firebug tests for us. It was a decent turn-out and you helped us catch some bugs. Over the course of the day, we filed around 16 bugs, 1 of which was deemed invalid (Other Component, Weave), and 8 of those remaining were fixed since [...]


Firebug Testday On Right Now, 1.4a26 warning

Just a little reminder that we’re testing Firebug over in #testday on irc.mozilla.org. Grab the latest clean release (Firebug 1.4a25) from getfirebug.com/releases/firebug/1.4 and come on in. Please be advised that Firebug 1.4a26 has been declared “Dead on Arrival”. Please don’t update to this version.


Firebug Testday, Friday, May 8th, 2009

(currently 1.4a25) Our goal is [...]


FireDiff extension for Firebug

Kevin Decker’s FireDiff extension for Firebug is 0.1 old! It’s still new, but could be the beginning of a one-stop-shop for getting diffs for changes to locally-modified DOM and CSS from Firebug. You can grab it from the above link or browse the source code in Firebug’s svn repository. You will need Firebug 1.4a17 or [...]


Tabs on Top

Curtis Bartley landed his “Tabs on Top” patch last week and John Barton pushed out a new alpha version, number 1.4a17. You can get it in the usual places on getfirebug.com/releases/firebug/1.4. The debug version is next door. We think this makes more sense. Tabs are top-level objects and the toolbars change depending on which tab [...]


Firebug and 3.5 compatibility

Awhile back I stated that Firebug 1.4 was compatible with Firefox 3.1b2 (soon to be rebadged as 3.5). At the time, this was a true statement, though the version we had available, a12, wasn’t really ready for prime-time. I said we’d be ready for February back in January thinking we would have a version ready [...]
