Behind the Scenes

For a web developer, the awesome fantastic Firebug provides everything you need, but it is currently only available for Firefox. Asrail is trying to make Firebug 1.2 work with SeaMonkey 2, though; I successfully installed an XPI today. Until he releases something I will just give you a hint: search for "caio seamonkey firebug" in Google Groups. Or take a look at Firebug Lite.

  • Ratty helped me with an install.js and some fixes for firebug 1.1.
    But that version of firebug was too buggy.

    firebug 1.2 won't install on SM 1.x and still quite buggy.

    It's quite easy to manage it not to work.

    I'll wait 1.3 to see if the firebug bugs disappear.
    So it'll be easy to fix the issues with the port.


    If you have something to report, please do so.

    Thanks for mentioning that on the blog.
