This resolved some loading issues on Youtube & DeviantArt for me. The sites are much fater now.
I was able to install and use it in under thirty seconds. No difficulties setting breakpoints (right click on the function name in the left panel) or stepping through code. Great tool and I'm not sure how it could be much simpler.
A lot of negative reviews but not mention of a better debugger I am going to try it and if it doesn``t work then clearly it is not difficult to uninstall it or reinstall firegox but save your addons with FEBE first.
Firefox 3.0.12 / Venkman 0.9.87.4
installing and using no problems
for newbies => too complex
for freaks => the best what I've ever seen
I only created an account here because I had to say what idiocy this is. Do not download it, you waste your valuable time for nothing. Nothing is intuitive, nothing works, hangs browser.
I've been working with Eclipse and NuSphere products for some years by now, each of them has debuggers I successfully used. I know how a debugger is supposed to work, I'm not an imbecil. However I haven't been able to do a simple set-a-breakpoint->run->step-trough-code use case.
The author must be an idiot and should quit programming (seriously).
If you have had problems with Venman crashing firefox, failing to place breakpoints, and throwing spurious errors, then make sure you haven't got firebug installed - the two debuggers seem to mess each other up.
To my mind, just one missing feature: the ability to sort functions/object/method name in the "loaded scripts" tree view.
A "must have" addon.
A great debugger. Very handy to debug Add-ons and webpages as well.
Not at all useful. Installation was easy but that's it.
Could not debug anything.
Didn't accept Breakpoint settings
"Continue" and "Step In/Over/Out" always greyed out.
Halted arbitrarily during execution.
Screwed up Browser.
No info, No docu, No help
Waste of Time !
To me, Venkman is the most underappreciated extension around. Sure, Firebug is easier to use, but only at first. Both are excellent tools, but Venkman has the real feel of a debugger, with customizable panels, stops on error, exceptions, and ability to look at other scripts that may sometimes affect your code ... Pity that I can't give Venkman more than 5 stars. Just read the FAQ, give it a whirl and you will not regret it. Many thanks to the developers!
I've not used it extensively but I found it a great help. Good job!
I hate it! The UI is awkward and inconvenient. There is virtually no documentation. Windows reconfigure themselves without warning and I cant figure out how to change them back. Worst of all I am unable to uninstall it from my windows machine. The uninstall instructions at the website have nothing to do with windows. Perhaps one day this will evolve into a good tool but right now its a half baked item and the user is on the developer's debugging team.
Couldn't live without it, but Interactive Session no longer works in versions after 3.0.1.
Please hurry with a fix!
Simply gr8 , I love this debugger.
I have been fighting my PC for months. Trouble with the entire OS freezing up, sometimes for as much as 10 minutes. I suspected Java, or Flash, as I could see it was related to images, but nothing I tried worked until installing this nifty tool tonight. Problem solved. Thank, thank you, thank you.
cpu at 100%
My browser crashed too when the first time I tried to run it, any idea?
My browser immediately crashes when I run it. Are there known solutions this problem?
The excellent tool, the good assistant in work.
I tried to install it on FF 3 beta 4 and got a message saying that this not compatible with the version 3 beta 4 of Firefox.
User friendly installation. Ever for a grommet like me.
