Apologies for missing last week's update. So to make up for it, here are 2 weeks worth of DevTools updates!

Debugger

  • The debugger now defers fetching call stack frames, which will be a nice perceived performance improvement bug 1594861

Console

  • Fixed autocompletion issue when the user accepts a completion (with Enter, Tab or right arrow) shortly after typing a letter — Bug 1595068 

  • You can now use console.table with Typed arrays — Bug 1595594

  • Raymond added an “Open in new tab” context menu entry on links in the console output — Bug 1214556

  • Console.table improvements

    • Table is no longer impacted by later alterations on argument — Bug 1326182

    • Should now work with performance.getEntries() result — Bug 1536523

    • Column limit was bumped to match Chrome implementation — Bug 1067710

  • Empty string console.* arguments are rendered as <empty string> — Bug 1375752

Layout/Mobile Tools

  • WebCompat

    • Presented feature at the mozilla developer roadshow. Received positive feedback and people were eager to use it.

    • Patches are in review. Goal remains to land what we have before the end of the year in Nightly.

  • Quality

Network Monitor

  • Search (bug), Resource Blocking (bug) and WebSocket Inspector (bug) features enabled on all channels and riding the trains.

Sorry all, a bad link slipped into this email.

The correct link for this update:

  • The debugger now defers fetching call stack frames, which will be a nice perceived performance improvement bug 1594861


Is in fact: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1594861 and not a similar link on the bugzilla.com website (which I encourage you to visit anyway if you're into VW beetle cars).
