I'm a professional web developer with a company and a co-worker just told me about Firebug the other day. Today I clocked it for the first time and I saved nearly 2.5 hours (based on usual average) when putting together the CSS for a new project.
Firebug simply is a MUST-HAVE tool for anybody who handcodes their HTML or CSS – you won't believe that you ever got along without it.
I'm using Firebug 1.4a12 with firefox 3.1b3.
When I disable firebug I can load google reader's posts, but When I enable firebug , I can't load google reader...
An absolute must for any Web developer or designer alike. Once you have tried it you will wonder how you lived without it.
Very powerful and yet so simple to use!
Anyone who has used Dragonfly in Opera - this is a very similar solution for Firefox.
It's impossible to actually convey how useful this tool is. It adds a whole new dimension to the hands of the web developer, saving hours of production time.
I have updated firefox to 3.0.7 and firebug to 1.3.3 and after restarting firebug stopped responding. After tracing issue I found that I have also updated Skype and skype extension for firefox and this causing issue with firebug working. So disabling skype extesion for firefox fixed it for me and now firebug works fine for me.
Overall a great tool, however the current version 1.3.3 would not install correctly. I had to re-install the old one.
The absolute industry standard for building/testing web apps
Nice useful very good designed addon.
MUST HAVE if you are web developer; still learning or advanced!
Esencial para el trabajo de desarrollador web, es muy util!
Must have for every Web developer
Love It..and can't live without it as a web developer. it helps to troubleshoot and study the codes. perfect tools, one of the must have for web-developer
To think in the past times of the pre-firebug era it's pretty scary. Thanks for this tool!
best tools for editing code online
FireBug is the DeFacto WebDeveloper / Designer tool. an out-FOXTROT-standing ADDon. I am an Internet Taxidermist by trade, and Interactive Media Design Student. I've shared FireBug with my fellow students, web and non-web majors, and nothing but enlightenment has followed. Being able to send the bug in and view the page structure visually has unraveled the mysteries of CSS for many here. (Thanx)
Thank you guys for this add-on! It saves me a lot of time! Keep doing a great job!
Apart from the problem with downloads freezing at 99%, I discovered another problem: google ads on my site would not display, or displayed randomly. This problem appeared a day or so after I linked my google adsense and analytics accounts, but went away when I disabled Firebug (which is a must-have extension for any web developer).
So I don't know if it is purely a Firebug issue, or related to some buggy Analytics code ... there have been reports about a function failing in recent Analytics releases (Firebug complains about _gat._getTracker()).
Looking forward to the bugfix release :-)
This is very good addon, but it has a bug that freezes your downloads at 99% most of the time. Please fix.
Great debugging and testing tool
Best Web Debugging Tool. Nothing less.
Saves a lot of time!
When it comes to making lots of CSS tweaks, this is very handy.
