I think I fat-fingered some setting. Now when I launch Firefox, or when I visit some web sites such as this one, Firebug also starts. I want to keep Firebug, I just don't want it to launch every time I visit a new site.

Firebug Auto-launchHow do I disable auto-launch of Firebug?

I'm using FF17.0.1 and Firebug 1.11.0.

Did you launch Firebug on another webpage of this site?

If so, you may be interested in disabling the "Activate For Same origin URLs" option:

"Activate For Same origin URLs" option

Edit: Maybe you're looking for this solution:!topic/firebug/FqyLROFxKFo

Right-click on the Firebug logo (on the top-right corner), and check that the "On for all web pages" option is disabled:

"On For All Web Pages" Option

Try Firebug 1.5a21, Its a know bug and they dont know why it does that.

Also Ive heard that after reinstalling it it will work for a while but thats more of a workaround
