FirePHP not responding in FireFox 8 with Firebug 1.8.4

Claus Mygind

Yesterday FireFox 8 came out and updated my browser. Today when I try to use FirePHP to track my php programs, I get no response in my headers on the fireBug console.

Is this a version issue or is just me?

It should be noted that I have already reviewed and checked the following items.

1) Is the Firebug Net Panel Enabled? It is enabled.

The Net panel must be enabled for FirePHP to be able to listen to your page requests and grab the FirePHP Headers you are sending.

2) Are FirePHP Headers being sent? Did not see this in the headers being sent

To check if the headers are being sent go to the Firebug Net Panel and click on the request for your page. Then look for Response Headers starting with X-Wf-.

3) Is FirePHP Enabled? Yes it is enabled

In your browser menu bar go to Tools -> FirePHP and ensure there is a checkmark next to FirePHP Enabled.

4) Do you have output buffering enabled? Verified that this setting is indeed turned on.

Ensure you are using ob_start() at the beginning of your script or you have the output_buffering PHP ini directive enabled.

Still not working?

You must have Firebug 1.8 installed. Has the developer made FirePHP compatible with FF8?

As noted in the title to this thread I have Firebug 1.8.4 installed. The developer responded in the google groups with this.

"It is working for me"

Then went on to give this advice.

First thing to check:

If using the FirePHP Extension with Firebug:

Make sure the Firebug Console and Net panels are enabled for the hostname you want to debug.

Second things to try:

Restart Firefox
Reboot your computer

Create a new Firefox profile and install the FirePHP client + Firebug only.

Do you have any suggestions that the developer has not given me?

...And yet another reason to hate the new Firefox development mess. I, too, am having problems getting Firebug and FirePHP to work properly after upgrading umpteenth times. My work environment has been destroyed, thanks Firefox!

things have gotten better. Download the new version of firephp. go with just the free version to begin with, it will give you everything you had before. Just remember to have firebug open on the console tab when you expect a returned results from firephp. A few small improvements have been made like looking at returned array results, much easier now.
