Firebug for Firefox5/Aurora? Get version 1.8!

Just a quick tip that if you are a developer and you lately upgraded Firefox4 to Firefox5 (or why not give Aurora a try?) it tells you that Firebug is not compatible and can’t find an upgrade.

However, there is a compatible version of Firebug (v1.8) available for you: get it here.

Now you can get the latest Firefox goodness and still debug your code.

    I just heard earlier today that Firebug 1.7.1 (the current release on AMO) is compatible with Firefox 5.

    (Note that Aurora is Firefox 6 now and there is a crashing bug affecting Firebug on the new Aurora. This bug is already fixed but needs to be merged into Aurora builds.)

    I believe Honza told me that Firebug 1.9 is needed for Firefox 7.
