Firebug Suddenly Disappeared

Asked by Pankaj Sharma on 2016-03-25

I have been using firebug for a long time but today it went missing suddenly. I removed and re-installed it many times but still the problem persists. It gets installed easily but I am not able to see firebug option/icon anywhere. I tried using F12 but that opens the Firefox default debugging tool.

Yes but it was not working. Anyways, I have resolved it by downgrading the firebug to the version 2.0.4.
Thanks for the help !
