jQuery animations fail without firebug

Reported by: jakerella Owned by: jakerella
Priority: low Milestone:
Component: core Version: 1.3.1
Keywords: firebug animate Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

With the newer versions of firebug, one must load the console manually in JS code:

if (loadFirebugConsole) { loadFirebugConsole(); }

This is usually done at the top of any JS code (after including libraries) so that you can use the console later in the page/app. This line is causing problems with all animations if Firebug is not installed or disabled on the client browser.

I haven't been able to dig into the code yet to see what's going on, but I might try later this week when I have more time.


-Make sure Firebug is installed and active

-Go to: in Firefox

-The first page will work fine, then click on "broken anim"

-Only difference is the commented out loadFirebugConsole line

Reproduced on:

Firefox 2 AND 3

Firebug 1.3

jQuery 1.2.6 AND 1.3.1

Windows AND Mac

Sorry, one mistake in the reproduce instructions:

"Make sure Firebug is NOT installed or inactive"

Not sure what can be done about this, but it's worth documenting at least.

The test case link is dead.

Sorry, that server went down a while ago and the test case was lost. Please see the attachment by dmethvin and follow reproduce instructions in original bug description

I’m sorry, how is this a jQuery bug? You are trying to access a property that does not exist (loadFirebugConsole) and so, of course, the browser throws a ReferenceError.
