Created attachment 8605971 [details] firebug_console_breakpoint.gif User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0 Build ID: 20150508094354 Steps to reproduce: Firebug 2.0 has a feature that allows setting a breakpoint in its Console for the errors. Use case: 1. Open the devtools on this page: http://localhost/firebug/console/5216/issue5216.html 2. Click on the "Cause Exception" button 3. In the WebConsole, you see an error. With this error, you should be able to set a breakpoint which will break where the error occurred. Also see the attached gif to see how Firebug handles that. Florent
Sorry, the pace of the frames of the gif is fast... Florent
:odvarko, do you know if there are plans to implement this?
(In reply to Lin Clark [:linclark] from comment #2) > :odvarko, do you know if there are plans to implement this? I don't know about any plans, but I like that feature and the way how it's implemented in Firebug. You might also see this demo page (demoing various kind of breakpoints): https://getfirebug.com/doc/breakpoints/demo.html#errors UI/UX: - see the gray circle displayed before the source-code-line (the one where the error happened) - it indicates a place where you can create a breakpoint by clicking Helen, what do you think about the UI/UX?

The only question is a UI one—should we have the circle be red because it's an error, or blue because debugger breakpoints are traditionally blue? I don't know the right answer—that's the question I would ask for this bug, though.

I think that the breakpoint itself should look exactly the same as it looks like in the debugger panel so, it's consistent across the entire UI (which also means we should use the new marker). This allows the user to quickly understand that a breakpoint has been created (after clicking). It's up to the log itself to be visually designed so, it's clear that it's an error. Note that fixing this would make Firebug users a bit happier when switching to DevTools. Honza
