Firebug Extension Examples

This repo is intended to contain Firebug extension examples that demonstrate how to utilize various Firebug extension API.

CacheListener

Firebug internal cache contains response bodies intercepted by Firebug. This extension shows how to hook into a cache model and get copy of HTTP responses.

Related API:

Firebug.TabCacheModel.addListener();
Firebug.TabCacheModel.removeListener();

HelloAMD

This extension shows how to use AMD syntax within Firebug extension.

Related API:

var config = {id: "helloamd@janodvarko.cz"};
Firebug.registerExtension("helloamd", config);

TODO:

  • The tracing listener usage must be updated (see HelloBootAMD).

Resources:

Requirements:

  • Firebug 1.10+

HelloBootAMD

Similarly to HelloAMD this extension shows how to use AMD and also demonstrates how to create bootstrapped (restart-less) extension for Firebug. This example is recommended to clone when starting your own Firebug extension

Related API:

firebugStartup(); // called when Firebug is bootstrapped
firebugShutdown(); // called when Firebug is uninstalled
topWindowLoad(win); // called when a new browser window is opened
topWindowUnload(win); // called when an existing browser window is closed
firebugFrameLoad(Firebug); // called when Firebug UI is loaded into an existing browser window
firebugFrameUnload(Firebug); // called when Firebug UI is unloaded from an existing browser window 

Resources:

Requirements:

  • Firebug 1.10+

TODO:

  • Remove the XUL support, which is not used and demonstrated by HelloAMD example.

HelloWorld

This example represents old school architecture based on XUL overlay. Modern extensions should use AMD and bootstrapped API instead.

Infotip

Learn how to create an info tip in your panel.

Related API:

Firebug.InfoTip.addListener();
Firebug.InfoTip.removeListener();
function showInfoTip(infoTip, target, x, y) {};

TODO:

  • Remove the showInfoTip from Firebug.InfoTab?

Resources:

Requirements:

  • Firebug 1.7+

Link Inspector

See what API is exposed by Firebug inspector. This example shows how to implement/customize own inspector.

Related API:

var inspectorListener =
{
    onStartInspecting: function(context) {},
    onInspectNode: function(context, node) {},
    onStopInspecting: function(context, node, canceled) {}
};
Firebug.Inspector.addListener(inspectorListener);

Resources:

Requirements:

  • Firebug 1.7+

Net Listener

See how to collect all network requests and also related info gathered and computed by Firebug's Net panel.

Related API:

Firebug.NetMonitor.addListener();
Firebug.NetMonitor.removeListener();
