Firebug Lite - a port of the popular Firebug for Google Chrome.

*NOTE : This is a fork of Firebug Lite as the original version is not supported any longer by newer Chrome versions* *If you didn't use this extension before, and only _think_ that you might need it - you're most likely better of with the Chrome Devtools ( press F12 or Control+Shift+I or Command+Option+I )* If you like, please support us to keep old extensions alive by donating a beer, a coffee, a car - whatever you like. Overview ------------- Firebug Lite is not a substitute for Firebug, or Chrome Developer Tools. It is a tool to be used in conjunction with these tools. Firebug Lite provides the rich visual representation we are used to see in Firebug when it comes to HTML elements, DOM elements, and Box Model shading. It provides also some cool features like inspecting HTML elements with your mouse, and live editing CSS properties. Updates ------------- 18th August 2019 : * Better error messages when a security policy of a website prevents Firebug from being injected * Better error messages when Firebug didn't load yet, and is being executed on a website before it was reloaded * Fixed issue where clicking on "Inspect with Firebug Lite" on right click would do nothing * Added donation and rate extension links in context menu - thank you for supporting old extensions 23th January 2019 : * Fixes for newer Chrome versions 28th June 2018 : * Updated to Firebug Lite 1.5 * Fixes to make it work with Angular * Fixed missing images * Small bugfixes Benefits over Firebug Lite bookmarklet ----------------------------------------------------- * Browser toolbar integration * Able to activate Firebug Lite for a particular domain * Firebug Lite will be loaded before all other scripts, allowing it to capture all console calls, and all XHR requests for that page * It is faster to load, because all code and images will be store in the extension's directory in your machine * Will be able to read external resources in the next version Limitations ---------------- * Cannot read external resources * Won't work well on pages with frames * JavaScript debugger isn't available * Net Panel isn't available Activation -------------- The Firebug Lite activation scheme is very simple. When you first visit a web page, Firebug icon will be grey, indicating that it is deactivated. Clicking on it will activate Firebug for all pages in that domain, and the icon will become orange. To deactivate for a particular domain, go to a page in that domain, and click on the "off" button. Contributing ----------------- Your contribution is very important. Found a bug?

Error: It seems that this page is opened before Firebug Lite was enabled. It will (hopefully) load after reloading this page. I already restarted my PC and open Chrome Browser after installing this extension yet I am facing same error for all page even it is not working neither in ingonito or in normal tab. This extension is pretty disaster.
