Firebug for Firefox 3

Careful! This post is looking a little old and could be inaccurate in many, many ways

Since downloading Firefox 3 I have been without the Firebug add-on and it’s been like having a limb cut off. I may be exaggerating a little but as an integrated development tool for Firefox it is one of the most invaluable tools I use, as integral to my working day as Photoshop and Dreamweaver.

I had assumed that no update was available as Firefox 3 would not automatically update to a newer version on install or even when asked to search for updates. However today I decided to have a look through the add-ons on the Mozilla website and was able to find an up-to-date version that would install. Why Firefox couldn’t automatically find the update is a mystery to me.
