"Firebug" add-on's "Inspect Element with Firebug" menu does not work with e10s
1. Install Firebug on Mozilla Firefox Nightly with "browser.tabs.remote.autostart"'s value TRUE 2. Open a web page (https://www.google.com/), right click on the element which you want to inspect and click on the "Inspect Element with Firebug". 3. It will attach Firebug window to your browser at the bottom. Expected Result: HTML codes should be highlighted for inspected element Actual Result: No HTML or CSS are visible in the HTML editor and CSS Editor.
With Nightly 35.0a1 (2014-09-11) and Firebug 2.0.4, the `Inspect Element with Firebug` context menu item does bring up Firebug, but there is no text content in the HTML view inside firebug. The same thing happens when I use F12 to bring up Firebug. No content in the HTML view in the Firebug window. Firebug works as expected when I disable E10S. ...My intuition is that Firebug isn't "seeing" or "talking to" the tab at all.
Firebug 2 doesn't support e10s. You need to upgrade to Firebug 3 (currently in alpha phase) See also: http://blog.getfirebug.com/2014/11/10/firebug-3-next-generation-of-firebug/ Honza
