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.

  • 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).

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

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