-You can use ''dump()'' statements instead of ''alert()'' to display debug information for your extension. In order to view the ''dump()'' output, go to [[about:config]], add new boolean pref '''browser.dom.window.dump.enabled''' and set its value to '''true'''.+
- +
-Then start Mozilla (or Firefox or Thunderbird) with '''-console''' parameter ([http://www.mozilla.org/docs/command-line-args.html more information]).+
-You will now be able to see ''dump()'' output in the opened console window.+
