In bug 1300861 we turned on the new debugger for Nightly builds and in bug 1294139 we turned on the new debugger for all channels.  However several things have changed and we need to roll back our plans for releasing the new debugger.

Please hold the pref change that defaults to the new debugger in the Aurora channel. 

This will give us more time we need to land a few features we knew we were missing but were hoping would be further along by this point.  These missing features are things like Watch Expressions and Hover in the Editor to inspect.

I am not sure how to manually test the preference. as it requires a beta release.

no.

If the new debugger frontend is enabled it is not a bad experience.
