This one's bugging me since ever. Is it possible to enable autocomplete in Firebug console when it's expanded? In "condensed" mode (which is default) it works like a charm.

I noticed that some plugins (link) offer this functionality, but I'm looking for a more "native" solution. Any ideas?

+1 for mentioning the add-on. – jakub.g Jul 8 '12 at 0:55
np. I guess we'll have to wait, either for native Firefox devtool (scratchpad) to get mature, or firebug to catch up with it's rival (Chrome devtool console). – aL3xa Jul 8 '12 at 11:40

Autocompletion in Firebug expanded console is invoked with Ctrl+space.

This long requested feature was finally introduced in Firebug version 2.0, March 2014.
