For the JS debugger I'd love a "Step until 'input code' evaluates to true in the local scope" mode. A bit like a conditional breakpoint but evaluated for every single statement (and for good measure before returning from any function). An auto-pilot that drives on my behalf until the condition I want to know something about happens 8-)
I like this idea. Stepping until some condition becomes true is something I do manually all the time. Automating that would make the debugger much more pleasant to work with.

That said, realistically, we won't get to it any time soon though, so I'm labelling this as P3 for the time being. We can bump the priority should more people express interest in it.
Priority: -- → P3
Product: Firefox → DevTools
Type: defect → enhancement
Priority: P3 → P5

This is a fun feature. I'd love to get some publicity for it and hear what others think :)
