XDebug Helper for Firefox

Debugging, profiling and tracing PHP code with Xdebug is very powerful, but enabling Xdebug with cookies or adding POST/GET variables is way too hard. This extension will help you to enable/disable debugging, profiling and tracing of your PHP-code easily.

It is based on the Chrome extension https://github.com/mac-cain13/xdebug-helper-for-chrome/ with the edits to remove unsupported webextensions API calls.


Ctrl+Shift+X (Cmd+Shift+X on Mac) opens the popup.
Alt+Shift+X toggles the debugging state.

How to install this extension?

Stable version: Go to the Firefox Addon and click "Add to Firefox".

Development version: Download the source from GitHub and load the extension into Firefox yourself!
