I couldn't miss this nifty extension in my series of posts about Firebug extensions. It's a small plugin focused on one thing and working great!

This extension is compatible with Firebug 1.12 (will be released in couple of weeks).

FirePicker adds a small color picker dialog when editing a CSS rule in Firebug. The addon scans for values that can be parsed as CSS colors and displays them in a drop-down list right below the firebug's CSS editor box. Clicking on the color value in the drop-down brings up a color picker dialog.


Another Firebug extension we have tested with upcoming Firebug 1.12 (will be available in several weeks) allows managing web storage directly in your Firebug.
FireStorage Plus! appends an extra Firebug tab which lets you inspect and modify the local and session storage.


FireQuery is one of my favorite extensions for Firebug and I am regularly using it every time I am debugging web application that is build on top of jQuery.
FireQuery is a Firebug extension for jQuery development. It's a collection of Firebug enhancements for jQuery.


Another nice extension I would like to mention is related to server side logging: FireLogger

FireLogger implements simple yet powerful server side logging (similar to console.log on the client side). It creates a new panel (a logging console) in Firebug UI that displays logs coming from the server.

Logs are sent to the client side over HTTP headers. The extension supports PHP and Python scripts.

You can dowload it from AMO.


There are many Firebug extensions implementing new nifty features for Firebug and its great to see that new ones are still coming.

In this post, we'll take a quick look at one of them: Console Export.

ConsoleExport is a Firebug extension (you need Firebug 1.6+) that allows exporting logs from the Console panel. The export can be done manually through an Export button (see the screenshot below) or automatically by sending every log to the server.
