Firefox & Debugging in Flex – same browser tab and no swf caching

Handy tips I picked up recently. In Firefox, type about:config in the address bar.

To make Flex debug window use the current tab, instead of repeatedly opening new tabs (very annoying), then do step 1.

If you’re debugging modules, the browser may have cached them, so you have to repeatedly delete the History and chache. Step 2 solves this.

  1. browser.link.open_newwindow = 1 (default is 3)
  2. browser.cache.disk.enable = false
