So, being a web developer, I like to sometimes see when problems arise in my code. Thanks to the latest and greatest from firefox, this is now that much harder. Great. Another “feature” of theirs…almost as useful as the memory leak feature that still haunts me to this day. Here’s what I’m talking about:
Ever see this? The file upload.php exists at that location. Checking the source shows that, indeed, the script loaded and threw and error. Why then, pray tell, does firefox insist on persisting in its endeavour to destroy my life and career and steal all my friends?
I’ve found no documentation of this “feature” so have been thus far unable to get rid of it. Any ideas?
I used to love firebug (a firefox extension). Notice my purposefully not linking to their extension page. In recent months, they have crippled the plugin’s functionality and UI. In order to activate it on a page, I no longer get a checkboxes and a big button to push, I now have to click a very obscured arrow icon and enable it. If that wasn’t bad enough, the “close firebug” icon, which used to be in the far right where one would expect it to be (and where it had been for years) is now a “turn off firebug” button, with the “close” button now moved two buttons over. Great, now I keep turning it off instead of minimizing it…which brings us back to finding the obscure arrow.
You think that’s bad? Try using google maps with newer versions of firebug. It completely hangs. There isn’t a whole lot of info on this, but try it. Load a page that uses the JS google maps API and it will wait for gg.google.com indefinitely. Turn off firebug and what happens? OMG it wurkz fine!
Firebug: please revert to your older and much more useful interface, and fix your stupid gmaps problems (perhaps take a look at how a 204 http code is supposed to work lol hax wtf). Also, if you can’t make your interface useful, can you at least quit fucking it up more and more? kkthxbai
