CodeBurner for Firefox


What's new in Version 1.5.2

Improvements to CodeBurner for Firefox v1.5.2 include:

  1. added support for Firefox 3.6
  2. a new user option in Firefox 3.5 or later — "minimize browser names" — which de-clutters the search-results tables such that browser names are only shown once per table, instead of every row
  3. improved focus behaviors in the tab-boxes
  4. more easily-identifiable stylesheet URLs in the CSS view
  5. a few minor bugfixes

This version also implements a new HTML templating system for the search results and code examples, in order to comply with new and stringent restrictions on add-ons' scripting in the public directory at; users shouldn't notice any difference.

What's new in Version 1.5

New and improved features in CodeBurner for Firefox v1.5 include:

  1. comprehensive user preferences, allowing you to control many aspects of CodeBurner's appearance and behavior, including the layout of status-bar items, the behavior of web links, syntax colors for all code output, and keyboard shortcuts for primary actions
  2. a new CSS view, that works in tandem with the DOM view, allowing you to view all the stylesheets on the DOM view page, and get information about selectors, properties and at-rules
  3. new reference data, covering CSS selectors and CSS at-rules
  4. syntax-highlighting in the code examples
  5. a "quick search" box in the status-bar
  6. the DOM view address bar now has history autocomplete, history saving, and favicons
  7. a handy "delete" icon in the main search box (that appears whenever there's text in it)
  8. disabled JavaScript in the DOM view browser, to avoid security issues, most console errors, and annoying features like popups being triggered in the page that's being inspected
  9. more accurate state persistence when switching between detached and attached instances
  10. a new dynamic script-loading technique that reduces the initial load, and allows for data-sharing with the Firebug version, if installed
  11. experimental support for Firefox 3.6a
  12. a variety of bugfixes, code enhancements for greater stability, and reduced memory footprint
