This documentation should be updated:
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/Code_snippets/JavaScript_Debugger_Service

* JSD has been removed in Firefox 33 (it should be documented)
* The link in "The best way to learn about the API behind JSD is to look at the source code from Mozilla Central." points to a 404.

CC'ing Will, but I can also have a look at this next week.
As far as I know we should be pointing people at this: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Debugger-API instead. Is that correct, jimb?

Never mind, reading through bug 800200, it seems pretty clear that it is correct.

I wasn't able to find more docs about JSD.

So, I updated https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/Code_snippets/JavaScript_Debugger_Service
and mentioned the change on https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox/Releases/33#Changes_for_add-on_and_Mozilla_developers

Thanks to Jimb, there are docs about the new Debugger API. Appreciated!
