Firefox 71 released with new developer tools features

Published on Dec 04, 2020 by Kodix Web Development

Yesterday, the Firefox team announced its latest version, Firefox 71. This version includes a plethora of new developer tools features such as web socket message inspector, console multi-line editor mode, log on events, and network panel full-text search. Many of these features were first made available in the Firefox Developer Edition and later improved based on the feedback.

Other highlights in Firefox 71 includes new web platform features such as CSS subgrid, column-span, Promise.allSettled, and the Media Session API.

What’s new in Firefox 71? Improvements in speed and reliability In Firefox 71, the team took some help from the JavaScript team by improving the caching of scripts during a startup. This made both Firefox and DevTools start faster. “One Console test got an astonishing 40% improvement while times across every panel were boosted by 8-15%”, the official blog post mentions.

Also, the links to scripts, for example, from the event handler tooltip in the Inspector or the stack traces in the Console, reliably gets you to the expected line and debugging sources loaded through eval() now also works as expected.
