Three Must-have Firefox Extensions for Web Development

Filed under: Flash,General — geoff @ 2:55 pm

Firefox 2.0 is wonderful.  Not only is it great for browsing the web, it’s a great tool for building for the web.  With a few extensions, it can become an invaluable tool for your web and Flash development.  Here’s the rundown:

  • Flash Switcher – (via Zeuslabs) allows you to switch Flash plugin versions on the fly, without reloading Firefox.  Supports versions all the way back to Flash 2.
  • FlashTracer – With the Flash 9 debug player, you can view your trace information right inside Firefox.  Great for remote debugging!
  • Web Developer – A toolbar with a myriad of tools for validating and troubleshooting XHTML and CSS web pages.  It has some great tools for dissecting your web pages and rooting out problems.  You can even edit your CSS and see the changes live!  I can’t live without this one.

There’s also Firefox’s built-in Javascript console, which is now called the Error Console.  Flashtracer and Web Developer are approved by Mozilla… Flash Switcher is new, and I’m sure it will be approved soon.

  2. If you do any JavaScript/CSS/HTML I think Firebug is a must :)

  4. Sothink’s SWFCatcher is also pretty useful – allows you to save off any SWFs running in the current page.

  5. I could not agree with you more on your selection of plugins.

    May be I would add to the list Tamper Data plugin to examine HTTP request headers: callshttps://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/966/
