Firebug 1.5a7with Activate Same Origin has Firebug 1.5a7. This release has one new small feature for users who have sites that generate unique URLs: “Activate Same Origin”. When this option is on, all pages with the same “origin” as an active page will be active. So, for example, if you open Firebug on, then visiit or, Firebug will be open. (This is close to the same-origin policy used by the browser).

Also in this version are some important bug fixes:

  • Issue 1894: CSS-edit removes declaration if page with specific javascript.
  • Issue 1879: nsIStreamListener.onDataAvailable throws exception
  • Issue 882: console.log() reports wrong source file and line number

All of this will appear in Firebug 1.4.0, “soon”. Note that if you install 1.5 it should work well but updates will begin to diverge from 1.4 and at that point it will be, well, ‘alpha’ quality.
