Description

4 years ago
Several panels of Firebug 2.0.2 don't work when e10s is enabled and it crashes the page when it's opened.

This is mainly meant to be a tracking bug as the Firebug Working Group decided to merge Firebug with the built-in devtools. I.e. Firebug is recreated from scratch based on the devtools and extending them.
So e10s compatibility is just required for the extensions to the devtools and will be mainly coordinated with the devtools team.

Do you refer to Firebug running on an e10s enabled profile?

To summarize the blog post: The upcoming Firebug version (currently in alpha phase) supports e10s. The current Firebug 2.0.6 now displays a message on e10s enabled profiles pointing to the new version.

Hi Sebastion - I'm working to figure out how all the most widely adopted add-ons are doing with e10s.  It says version 3.0 works, but i see only 2.0.17 available?  Do you have plans on releasing 3.0?  Or has 2.0.17 hit e10s compatibility?  We have folks that can test it out on different platforms if you think it is - but I don't want them to test if we know it's not.

As stated in the Firebug blog[1] Firebug.next (aka Firebug 3.0) is shipping built-in with Firefox as a theme for the Firefox DevTools (against the blog post already in version 48.0). Development on it as a separate add-on is abandoned.

Having said that, I left the Firebug Working Group some time ago. The person to contact for any further questions is Jan 'Honza' Odvarko, but I guess I can savely close this again.
