Firebug has been in active development and has recently reached stable version 1.2.1. If you are using anything lower then 1.2 then I would highly recommend you upgrade to 1.2.1 release which is listed on the https://addons.mozilla.org site here (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1843).

In other news I've been trying to keep on top of things. http://getfirebug.com is back up and running. There's still a broken "blog" link. (Note to self: report this to the firebug developers) The site has gotten a number of updates and now shows links and information about 1.2 release. While checking the site out today I noticed a ton of new information and sections. It has been some time since I visited the site. There's brand new Documentation (http://getfirebug.com/docs.html) and Extensions (http://getfirebug.com/extensions/index.html) pages that provide a ton of information and links. There's also a releases page that has links to alpha builds for the brave ones. I just installed 1.3a2 build.

Points of interest:
  • http://groups.google.com/group/firebug - this is the main Firebug discussion group. It has a lot of activity. It's also where developers interact with the users and announce new releases and bug fixes. It's also the starting point to ask questions before submitting bug reports.
  • http://groups.google.com/group/firebug-working-group - this is the discussion group of the Firebug Working Group (i.e. Firebug core dev team). It has general news items that developers share with the community.
  • https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firebug/WeeklyUpdates - is the official location of Weekly Update meeting reports/summaries. I highly recommend it for those that want to know what's going on and where things are heading.

I am glad to see a lot of activity happening around Firebug. I am also excited to see Mozilla stepping in and offering help with getting better integration between Firefox and Firebug.

P.S. Microsoft has posted a ton of stuff on their Internet Explorer (http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/) 8 progress and is actively integrating Firebug like functionality directly into Internet Explorer 8. They call it Developer Tools (http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2008/09/03/developer-tools-in-internet-explorer-8-beta-2.aspx). Some of the interesting items include integrated JavaScript debugging (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc848892(VS.85).aspx) and profiling (http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2008/09/11/introducing-the-ie8-developer-tools-jscript-profiler.aspx) support.
