Firebug 1.12.7

The Firebug team released Firebug 1.12.7. This version represents a maintenance release fixing some minor bugs and compatibility issues with upcoming Firefox versions.


Firebug 1.12.7b1 has also been released to update users on AMO beta channel. This version is exactly the same as 1.12.7.


Firebug 1.12.7 is compatible with Firefox 23 – 29

Firebug 1.12.7 fixes 9 issues.


Highlights from this release

  • The Net panel is properly displaying size of HTTP requests coming from the browser cache (issue 6837)
  • It’s possible to copy absolute and relative XPath (issue 7120)
  • Syntax highlighting in Command Editor is fixed (issue 7126)
  • Firefox JavaScript Debugging engine (JSD) is now paused if Firebug is not active on the current tab (but Script panel opened in background Firefox tab). So, the warning about Script panel causing Firefox slow-down has been removed (issue 7193)
  • Firebug 1.12.7 is compatible even with the current Firefox Nightly Build, Fx30 (issue 7208)


Please post feedback in the newsgroup, thanks.
