This page describes the JavaScript Debugger as it appears in Firefox 52 and above, in Firefox Nightly and Firefox Developer Edition.

To see what it's like in earlier versions of Firefox or in Firefox Beta and Release, see Debugger (before Firefox 52).

If you are getting this version of the Debugger and need to switch back to the old version, you can do so by visiting about:config and setting the "devtools.debugger.new-debugger-frontend" preference to false.

To prettify a minified file, click this icon:  in the source pane. The debugger will format the source and display it as a new file with a name like: "[original-name]:formatted".

Note: if you want to prettify some inline javascript code, just double click the code in the inspector pane.
