sometimes you need to debug something that happens on start up and can't attach quickly enough if you load the libraries right away

Hmm, the only thing is that it becomes tougher to set breakpoints at start time without the actual libraries loaded.

I usually like having libraries loaded when using the debug intent, but I use the debug intent so rarely that it doesn't matter much to me.
Comment 3 Brad Lassey [:blassey] (use needinfo?) 2010-06-24 11:26:07 PDT
we could add another button to load the libraries before you attach

Slightly more useful version

This loads libmozutils before the launch button is displayed, which allows to insert breakpoints in the dynamic linker.
