slack-badge ci-badge PRs Welcome

A hackable debugger for modern times, built from the ground up using React and Redux. It is designed to be approachable, yet powerful. And it is engineered to be predictable, understandable, and testable.

Mozilla created this debugger for use in the Firefox Developer Tools. And we've purposely created this project in GitHub, using modern toolchains. We hope to not only create a great debugger that works with the Firefox and Chrome debugging protocols, but also develop a broader community that wants to create great tools for the web.

Quick Setup

Or take a look at our detailed getting started instructions.

First, get a recent version of Node.js to run the debugger.

curl -o- -L | bash -s
git clone

cd debugger
yarn start
# Go to http://localhost:8000

If you are having problems with setting breakpoints in the debugger, launch Firefox Nightly instead of clicking on Launch Firefox.

Next Steps

Getting Involved

This is an open source project, and we would love your help. We have prepared a contributing guide to help you get started.

If this is your first PR, or you're not sure where to get started, say hi in Slack and a team member would be happy to mentor you.

We strive for collaboration with mutual respect for each other. Mozilla also has a set of participation guidelines which goes into greater detail specific to Mozilla employees and contributors.

Have you found a vulnerability in the debugger and want to report it? In that case, take a look at how we handle security bugs, and open a bug at Bugzilla so we can track the vulnerability while keeping users safe!
