Firebug 1.13 alpha 1 has Firebug 1.13 alpha 1

Firebug 1.13a1 fixes 31 issues
Firebug 1.13a1 is compatible with Firefox 23-26

We are again hardworking on the next great Firebug version for now labeled 1.13. The team focuses on JSD2 adoption and our plan is to have it ready in this new version. We have great roadmap and if successful we want to call it 2.0 eventually.

Thanks to our awesome team we have already made several new features and improvements in 1.13 (while Firebug 1.12 has been out for couple of weeks only)!

Some highlights from this release

  • The Script panel displays a notification if the source cache limit has been exceeded (issue 4906)You can use the Preferences button to change the limit. Browser restart is not needed after limit modification, just reload the page to get full source.script-cachelimit


  • Quick Info Box for elements can be pinned (issue 5720)Note that there are two buttons at the top right corner. One for pinning the box, so it stays displayed all the time and one for closing it.quick-info-box

    Read more about the Quick Info Box on our wiki.


  • Headers in net requests are collapsible (issue 4930)The Net panel has also been improved. Sections with HTTP headers (Response, Request and Cached Headers) are now collapsible and the state is preserved across Firefox restarts. So those headers, in which you are not interested don’t take space


  • Better way to add a new element attribute (issue 6661)We have improved the way how HTML attributes can be added into elements. Check out the next set of screenshots.html-panel1

    Hover mouse cursor over the closing arrow bracket of an element you want to add a new attribute to. See, the cursor changes its shape into a hand.

    Click on the closing tag to open an inline editor and start typing an attribute name.


    The rest works as usual. After you typed the name press the tab key and type the attribute value.



There is a lot more fixed in this version and you can check out our issue list.

Stay tuned and post feedback in the newsgroup
