Parent ID:                                       |         Points:
 Mozilla deprecated the Venkman debugger (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-
 us/firefox/addon/javascript-debugger/) in favor of the in-browser debugger
 US/docs/Debugging_JavaScript#JavaScript_Debugger) for debugging addons and
 browser javascript.

 Unfortunately, the instructions on that page do not work. I get a blank
 window that seems to just hang, without a connection attempt. I tried
 adding ",localhost" to the '''network.proxy.no_proxies_on'''
 pref, on the assumption that the TCP connection was failing, but to no

 We should probably try to have this fixed soon, so that debugging addons
 and browser javascript is possible in TBB 5.0.
