Description of problem:

It§s not possible to use Venkman JavaScript Debugger witk rpm version
of firefox. (JS Debugger extension). It's a bad thing this extension
is here not only for Mozilla developers but for web developers too.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

install JS Debugger extension ant try to run it from 'Tools' menu
instal from

Steps to Reproduce:
1. instal from

2. Run debugger from Tools menu
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

this is due to following line in mozilla-firefox 

ac_add_options --disable-jsd

Venkman needs internal JS engine enabled for debugging. If I comment
this line out all works fine.

I believe OS distro should support web developers ;-)
Comment 1 Steven Lawrance 2005-02-02 13:50:48 EST
I totally concur. I used the Mozilla package, which I think includes
Venkman in the debugger package, and it works fine, but not in
Firefox. I put myself on a mini-mission this morning to fix this issue
so that I can remove Mozilla and just use Firefox, and I read at
http://extensionroom.mozdev.org/more-info/venkman that --disable-jsd
breaks Venkman.

Removing the "ac_add_options --disable-jsd" line is totally okay by
me. I'm actually going to custom-compile my own RPM now and,
hopefully, a future version of the package from Fedora will include
this change as well.

As a follow-up, I'm confirming that changing --disable-jsd to
--enable-jsd in mozconfig-firefox made it work properly. I tested this
with firefox-1.0-8 from rawhide.

Fixed in rawhide.
