New in version 1.13 Alpha 8 (January 27th, 2014)

  • We introduced one nifty enhancement that allows displaying original CSS color values. There is a new option Colors As Authored that allows to display CSS color values as they were defined. This makes it easier to compare the styles interpreted by the browser with the ones inside the original CSS source file. While this new option is now the default, you still have the possibility to switch to hexadecimal, RGB or HSL formatting.

New in version 1.12.4 (November 9th, 2013)

  • This version introduces a workaround that solves Firefox tab switching and Firebug activation problem (see a platform bug). As a temporary measure, Firebug no longer pauses the debugger when switching tabs. This avoids long tab switching times (see issue 6086 for more details).
  • The entire problem will be properly fixed in the next major Firebug version that will be based on the new JavaScript Debugger API in Firefox.
