Viewing dump() output

You can use dump() statements instead of alert() to display some 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 Firefox up with 'firefox.exe -console' command. You will now be able to see dump() output in the opened console window.
