Description

4 years ago
While the debugger is paused the inspector doesn't work. A popup message tells the user about this circumstance:

"Debugger is paused. Some features like mouse selection will not work."

In JSD1 it was possible to circumvent this behavior, so it was possible for Firebug to inspect the HTML structure using the inspector tool while the script execution was halted.

One use case for this is to inspect menus, which open and close via JavaScript. So when the script is stopped when the menu is open, it allows the user to easily inspect and manipulate HTML and CSS of the menu.

There's also a related Firebug issue for this:
