Firefinder and Inline Code Finder updated to work with the latest Firebug versions

As part of making it easier to develop and analyze web pages, I previously released two extensions for Firebug: Firefinder and Inline Code Finder. I’m happy say they are now updated and are working with the latest versions of Firefox and Firebug!

The reason they stopped working was that Firebug changed its API from version 1.8 in how it exposes information to various extensions, and as a result, some extensions broke. I spoke to Firebug lead developer Jan “Honza” Odvarko and discussed the best way to ensure compatibility. A couple of quick pointers from him and my extensions were working again!

I hope you will find good use for them – personally, I enjoyed trying them out and testing things again. :-)
