I have firebug installed, and it's indispensable as I'm a web developer, so I can't uninstall it.

But when I load Gmail or CNN or various other websites, it always pops up and breaks on javascript errors. I have tried disabling the Script tab, but it still happens.

I'm using Firefox 3.6 with Firebug 1.7.2 on Windows 7, but this also happens with Firefox 4 and the latest version of Firebug.

Has anyone seen or heard of this? Any ideas how to resolve?

Could you provide some more detail? E.g. which operating systems do you use? –  jpaugh Jun 25 '11 at 0:43

Same here with Firebug 1.9.1 on Firefox 10.0 after trying that weird pause icon. cjroebuck's answer helped me fix this annoying behavior. –  Cees Timmerman Feb 7 '12 at 13:07

Check that the value extensions.firebug.breakOnErrors is set to false. To access and modify the value, type about:config in your firefox url bar. This fixed it for me.

It is possible that it shows errors from DIFFERENT tabs, happens to me too. Try to close all tabs (restart firefox) and keep only one you need
