Debugging JavaScript with Venkman on Firefox 1.5

Category: JavaScript

Joe Walker has been playing with Venkman, the JavaScript debugger, and its marriage with the old school Mozilla suite vs. Firefox.

He now has got a working version:

Currently you can’t CAN!. See below for update. Previously Venkman (the Javascript debugger) would not install, and if you tried to hack it by downloading the .xpi file, unpacking it, altering the .rdf file to allow it to install, it crashed.

It appears that the issue is lack of interest from the developers in fighting for the attention of Mozilla central.

So I did a bit of digging and I think there is a patch for Venkman that might allow it to work. The patch is attached to this bug.

Slight side-track: While we are on the subject of Venkman, it is possible to alter the annoyingly huge fonts used in the source windows.
