Firebug Works with Firefox 3!

For those of you like me who have upgraded to the Firefox 3 betas but were taking a big hit because of the loss of Firebug functionality, there is hope! Although it appears that Firebug 1.0.5 doesn’t automatically upgrade to 1.1, but 1.1 does in fact work with Firefox 3. I found this out by accident and it really made me happy since part of what I’m doing today is fiddling with <div> tags on the Create South website. It sure makes life better to have Firebug helping me with that.

  1. It won’t automatically upgrade yet because 1.1 is still in beta, but I agree – I couldn’t install FireFox 3 until FireBug worked, it’s just that useful 🙂
