Firebug 1.8.1

getfirebug.com has Firebug 1.8.1! This release has been also uploaded on AMO (it can take some time to appear).

Firebug 1.8.1 fixes 13 issues since (1.8.1b1) and is compatible with Firefox 5 and Firefox 6. See also list of fixed issues in Firebug 1.8.1b1

Beta channel on AMO is also updated (1.8.1b2 is the same as 1.8.1).

We have collected reports related to opening a new window problem in Firefox. All these reports are related to a RoboForm extension that breaks Firebug and Firefox. Note that the extension is automatically installed into every Firefox profile. To avoid the problem you need to manually disable RoboForm extension in Firefox Add-on Manager. In some cases you might also need to exit the RoboForm application in your system.

The problem is already reported and RoboForm team is working on a patch.

Highlight of this release:

  • Update notification page can now be disabled (issue 4032). Though we hope you keep it enabled, so get to know about the latest news.

Please post feedback in the newsgroup, thanks!
