--disable-jsd causes Venkman non-working
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:59 EST
Description of problem:
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):
install JS Debugger extension ant try to run it from 'Tools' menu
Steps to Reproduce:
1. instal from
2. Run debugger from Tools menu
this is due to following line in mozilla-firefox
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 ;-)
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
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.
