Firefox 3 and Firebug

As many of you know, the highly anticipated Firefox 3.0 has been released, and available to download from Mozilla Firefox. If you are also a designer then you will undoubtably want Firebug an addon to firefox, and a very useful item to have in your arsenal.

However if you have installed both of the items above, dont expect it to work immediately. Firebug needs some configuration, as I have just found out. By default Firebug does not check every site, you have to activate it, this is obvious, it displays a nice big message in the firebug pane. But it also has the "Show Javascript Warnings" set to off, if your trying to debug your latest ajax script you are going to want to have this on!

To turn on Javascript Warnings in Firebug, simply go to the options list on the top right hand side of the Firebug panel, and mark a tick next to Javascript.

Lesson over, Firebug does actually work with Firefox 3.0! Yay.
