To bad it only works for the single line console.
I think development stopped - because firebug 2.0 has it built in.
Just write the first letters and press ctrl+space like in notepad plus plus and other editors.
Anyway. Thank you for your wonderfull work in the past.

My son says that this is a great addon to a already great addon
The addon is great but unfortunately it doesn't seem to work when you open firebug in a new window and the console is in multiline mode.
I've seen that Cold Sun has given some sort of solution to the problem but I don't really know how to do it.
Any help would be really appreciated! :D
To fix the issue when Firebug is in a new window (where auto-completion doesn't work), change chrome/content/firebug.js line 59 like above:
--- firebug.js 2013-07-20 18:58:34.150803544 +0200
+++ firebug.js.new 2013-07-20 18:58:16.891802654 +0200

Please, consider giving ways to contact you for that sort of request. Thanks in advance!
To (temporary) fix the problem with the white on gray selected item you could do the following.
Find the overlay.css file.
And comment the line as follows:
/* -moz-appearance: none !important; */
Cool but.. latest version doesn't work with "firebug on separate window"
experiencing the same problem as @grzegrz, please fix
It is a life saver in most situations. Thanks for this.
This add-on is great and do it's staff well but current hint's font is white so I can see it at all! I need to go to the next one to make sure that the above was the right choice. Pretty annoying. Could you add colour of current hint in preferences?
I couldn't find any support section so here it is as a review. When I open Firebug Console the input area is grayed out when in multi line. When I disable Autocompleter, the problem goes away. A shame. This was a nice addon.
is there an easy way to call history using keybord like up down?
Fantastic tool which not only shows normal DOM objects and methods, by all of my own objects and methods too.
Only gripe is that I wish I could change the auto-complete keybind from Enter to Right-Arrow or Tab or something else.
I tried the version 126.96.36.199 and this addon is getting better
I haven't tried it out yet, but got it working -- turns out it was only enabled for 1.4-1.7X.* of Firebug, while I have 1.7.3, (1.7X was experimental before 1.7). So I edited the 'rdf' and allowed 1.7.*, an it loads...
Now that there's a new version, I should try it -- might remove need for manually editing the extention's compat list! :-)....
----orig comments follow---
w/FF 3.6.18, & Fbug 1.7.3, this addon is self-disabled with an error:REQUIRES ADDITIONAL ITEMS...no hint as to what other items are needed...:-(p.s. I would have give this 'no rating', since I don't feel I should have to give a rating for somethingthat I can't get to work in the first place that may be no fault of the addon...
Really great!! Found incompatibility with Acebug :(
When will be there a Linux compatibility ?
Make an option to trigger auto-completion on space and dot
(best would be to define list of characters after wich auto-completion is triggered)
Microsoft's IntelliSense uses this method
plz make an update for FF 4.b10 and later.
Quite good extension, gives a functionality that firebug should already have implemented: autocompletion in the larger command line editor (as they did in the smaller one). But has many usability flaws.
@thomas: it's a problem with firebug 1.6, recently released. While the developer fixes it, you can download the xpi, unzip it, edit "install.rdf" and replace "1.6X.*" with "1.6.*" or "1.7X.*", then rezip and (re)install the extension. I think IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO DO TWO MORE CHANGES while you are at it: edit "chrome/skin/classic/style/overlay.css" and "chrome/content/style.js", replacing "background-color: -moz-menuhover !important;" with "background-color: highlight !important;", and "color: -moz-menuhovertext !important;" with nothing (which I recommend) or with "color: highlighttext !important;". That way you could solve one of the UI problems: the selected and hovered items have a background extremely clear.
I really love this plugin. It's a young one, right? Very promising. Looking forward to more progress on this. Although I found some bugs, like that when a resize of window is done, the autocompleter panel's position changed.
And some advice:
1. provide default colors
2. hover color and current-selected color, they should be different
3. The option panel top icons, A.S.A.P, it's ugly to leave'em blank
4. Maybe a new option to work the same way as Safari and Chrome autocompleter
5. It's not a good idea to put a chinese character along with other icons... a lot of people won't understand
