Works fine on 3.5pre Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Works fine on 3.5pre (2009-06-05) when I force it to install with Nightly Tester Tools. No strange characters as in Hans’ link, either.
A lite version more akin to Safari’s “Activity” window would get 5 stars and be much appreciated.
Great [but the XULRunner version is even better…] Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Far better than mIRC.
Edit: I’ve now stopped using the extension version because I got tired of having to quit IRC every time I needed to restart Firefox (which is quite a lot, since I use nightlies). Now I use the XULRunner version from http://chatzilla.rdmsoft.com/xulrunner/ .
Since Firefox 3 has XULRunner built in, all you have to do is unzip the ChatZilla files and create a special shortcut.
In my case, the target is “"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -app "C:\Program Files\ChatZilla\application.ini"”. (I’ve also changed the icon, which is Firefox’s by default, to the one in ChatZilla’s \chrome\icons\default\chatzilla-window.ico file.)
Works great in Fx3 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This extension is great, and works fine with Firefox 3. I’d give it 5 stars if it supported multiple-account checking.
BTW: An “invalid username/password combination” error when you know your password is correct is likely caused by blocking third party cookies without setting an exception for yahoo.com (as mentioned in the FAQ). This should probably be mentioned in the error message itself. (Or, better yet, would it be possible to have the extension set the cookie exception itself?)
Works in Firefox 3.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I bumped the maxVersion with Nightly Tester Tools, and middle-clicking a form works fine.
Like Wai, I'd like to be able to see where a form leads in the status bar. However, that's very a minor issue for me.
Use it every day Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great extension. I use it almost every day.
I run the #webdev channel on DALnet, and I can’t imagine diagnosing people’s HTML problems without Firebug.
There’s only one caveat: It slows Firefox down a bit. For example, it used to take 2.8 seconds for Firefox 3.0 to start up and load the default homepage – with Firebug, it takes 3.4 seconds.
