Call for feedback – Autocompletion Popup Window

One of the changes we have done in this version touches the design of auto-completion popup that is available on Firebug’s Command Line (issue 6419).

See how the popup looked before:

Old auto-completion popup window


And here is new version.

New auto-completion popup window


Note that the auto-completion popup window has been offering two sets of APIs. One set is related to Firefox DOM API (i.e. methods and properties of DOM objects) and the other to Firebug Command Line API.
You can see: debug, dir and dirxml at the bottom being Firebug commands.


One goal of the redesign is to make clear which entries are DOM API and which are Firebug Command Line API. So, we introduced two sections as visible on the screenshot above.


Of course, if there are no Firebug commands to complete there are only DOM methods and properties.

Please try it and let us know what do you think about it.
Is the new design better?
Is there something you would like to improve?


Please post feedback in the newsgroup, thanks!
