Hard times for Venkman users on mozilla-central
Because of bug 458020, Venkman is unusable on mozilla-central's head. Whenever I try to get the value of JS variable in Venkman, I get crazy results. The last one was funny: in my code, I have
var rootElt = doc.documentElement; and I typed
rootElt in the evaluation textbox of Venkman ; the result was
"break"... Yes, the string
These days, when we need to observe the value of a variable, we rely on alert() and dump()...
I'll send a box of french chocolates to the contributor fixing this bug. I'm serious. We really need a fix ASAP for this bug, we just cannot work with Venkman in so bad shape, and the couple chromebug/firebug is not suitable to xulrunner-based apps as is.
