Examine, edit, and debug HTML, CSS, and JavaScript on the desktop and on mobile

What's new in Aurora?

The current Firefox Aurora release is Firefox 26, and includes these updates to the developer tools:

You can use the developer tools to examine and edit HTML and CSS, to debug JavaScript, and to run JavaScript in the page. You can use them to see network requests that your browser makes as well as any JavaScript and CSS warnings and errors that it encounters when loading a page. You can use them to debug performance problems with your site.

You can use the developer tools to debug code running Firefox for Android, and soon, Firefox OS. We've also provided tools that target mobile development: the Responsive Design View is a quick way to see how a site will look on a small screen, and the Firefox OS Simulator lets you run and debug a Firefox OS app on the desktop without needing to use a real Firefox OS device.

Firefox add-ons can access the debugger API, so you can build your own developer tools that extend and enhance the built-in tools. With the remote debugging protocol you can implement your own debugging clients and servers, enabling you to debug websites using your own tools or to debug different targets using the Firefox tools.


The Toolbox provides a single home for most of the developer tools that are built into Firefox.

Page Inspector
View and modify the HTML and CSS for the selected element.
Web Console
See informational, warning and error messages emitted by the browser loading a web page, and examine and manipulate the page using JavaScript.
Style Editor
View and edit CSS styles for the current page.
JavaScript Debugger
Step through JavaScript code that is running in the browser and watch variables to help track down bugs.
JavaScript Profiler
Use the profiler to figure out where your JavaScript code is spending its time.
Network Monitor
Inspect all the network requests that are made when a page is loaded, and how long they take to execute.


Of course, mobile web developers are web developers too, so most of the web development tools will be interesting to mobile web developers as well. But we've also created some tools specifically aimed at mobile development.

Remote Debugging
Use the developer tools to debug your Android device over USB.
Firefox OS Simulator
Run and debug your Firefox OS app on the desktop, without needing to use a real Firefox OS device.
Responsive Design View
See how your website or app will look on different screen sizes without changing the size of your browser window.

Standalone Tools

These tools ship inside Firefox as well, but their user interfaces aren't integrated into the Toolbox.

A text editor built into Firefox that lets you write and execute JavaScript.
Browser Console
See messages from all JavaScript code running in the browser including content, chrome, and add-ons. Execute JavaScript code in the chrome window's context.
Developer Toolbar
A command-line interface to manipulate and work with the developer tools in Firefox, and buttons for quick access to the most commonly used tools.
3D View
Also known as "Tilt", this provides a 3D visualisation of the current page.
Paint Flashing Tool
The paint flashing tool highlights the part of the browser window that are repainted in response to events, helping to diagnose potential performance problems with your site.
