Autocompletion for built-in properties

The Command Line supports auto-completion even for built-in members of String.prototype or Object.prototype and other objects.

Issue 959

First Run Page logic improved

We changed logic of the First Run Page, which is opened when Firebug is installed. We use this page to inform users about new features and fixes.

  • If Firebug is upgraded the first-run-page appears after Firefox restart
  • If Firebug is installed the first-run-page appears immediately
  • The first-run-page page is opened in background (the tab is not selected by default)

Issue 5888

Firebug is available in popups

Firebug is again available in popup windows. This nasty bug is fixed and the patch is also ported into Firebug 1.10. Firebug 1.10.5 will be released next week.

Issue 5949



Please post feedback in the newsgroup, thanks.
