Firebug 2.0b8 fixes 13 issues
Firebug 2.0b8 is compatible with Firefox 30-32

Beta releases are also uploaded on AMO.


We are releasing the last Firebug 2 beta version today. The final release will be available on Tuesday 10th of June. We need a time buffer to make sure that Firebug 2 xpi bundle has enough time to go through review on AMO.


Let’s check out what’s new in this release.

Pretty Print Button

This is a little change that we introduced to make sure that the support for source code prettifying is more visible to the user. There is a new button on the Script panel toolbar now (issue 7305).

Script Expression Inspection

We already mentioned support for object inspection in the Script panel in the previous post and we introduced some more improvements.

It’s now possible to inspect even selected expressions (issue 7475).

See, the little tooltip says that the result of 10 + 20 is 30. You can also right click on the selection and pick Inspect in DOM Panel or Use in Command Line (both actions will be applied on the selected expression result).


We have also improved the way how expressions under the cursor are analyzed and so for instance, the cases like the following also work as expected (issue 7484).

Check out various position of the mouse cursor and the expression under it.


Please post feedback in the newsgroup, thanks.
