Can't debug scratchpad scripts in the browser debugger

Run a script from a scratchpad in a Browser Context, ideally something that will stick around in a timer or similar.

Open a Browser Debugger and search for Scratchpad.

The script will appear in the Debugger list (probably as Scratchpad/1 or 2) but selecting it will only display "Loading..." in the Source area.
for bonus points, making scratchpad scripts show up in the content debugger would be to.
Seems like a dupe of bug 813087, but you focus on the script we pass to eval, which is a more general problem. I don't think we have a solution until bug 637572 is fixed.
similar but different. This is mostly about the script showing up in the list but not being accessible. I agree that bug 637572 would fix it.

I'm really sorry, but this bug is currently not on anyone's radar :-(

I'd love to look into it myself, but am too busy with service worker debugging at the moment.

Scratchpad was removed in Bug 1519103 (Firefox 72). You can check the alternative in .

The Scratchpad bug list was reviewed and I think this bug can be safely closed.
