Open the debugger

This page describes the JavaScript Debugger as it appears in Firefox 52 and above. To see what it's like in earlier versions of Firefox, see Debugger (before Firefox 52).

If you're using Firefox 52 or later and need to switch back to the old Debugger, you can do so by visiting about:config and setting the "devtools.debugger.new-debugger-frontend" preference to false.

There are three ways to open the debugger:

  • select "Debugger" from the Web Developer submenu in the Firefox Menu (or Tools menu if you display the menu bar or are on Mac OS X)
  • press the CtrlShiftS (CommandOptionS on OS X) keyboard shortcut
  • press the menu button ( new fx menu ), press "Developer", then select "Debugger".
