Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:32.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/32.0
Build ID: 20140831201947

Steps to reproduce:

1. Make sure the you have at least two debug-able addon installed
2. Make sure you have addon debugging allowed (settings of Developer tools)
3. Open about:addons
4. Click 'Debug' on arbitrary addon, confirm in following dialog
5. Click 'Debug' on different addon


Actual results:

Nothing visible to regular user.

Browser console (shell) output:
DBG-SERVER: Could not start debugging listener on '6080': [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x804b0036 (NS_ERROR_SOCKET_ADDRESS_IN_USE) [nsIServerSocket.initSpecialConnection]"  nsresult: "0x804b0036 (NS_ERROR_SOCKET_ADDRESS_IN_USE)"  location: "JS frame :: resource://gre/modules/commonjs/toolkit/loader.js -> resource://gre/modules/devtools/server/main.js :: DS_openListener :: line 463"  data: no]


Expected results:

Either a new debugger should be open or user should be notified that such action (concurrent debugging) is not possible.
