Firefox 4 and Live HTTP Headers?

I was preparing to upgrade to FF4, but just saw a comment in our Google SEO forum that Live HTTP Headers is not yet compatible with it.

Comments on the Mozilla Add-Ons page for Live HTTP Headers differ about whether the current version (v0.16) will work with FF4 and the "Compatibility" add-on.

Anyone here have direct experience with that?

Until they update Live Headers, just use HttpFox. Works great.

HttpFox

Thanks. I checked the HttpFox v0.8.9 Add-ons page for user comments, and the previous version gets mixed reviews for its incompatibilities, but there are no comments about the current version....

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/httpfox/

The discussion on the Google HttpFox group [groups.google.com...] is similarly out of date.

So... I can't tell whether the reported incompatibility with Roboform and the problems with POST data have been fixed. No site with development notes that I can find.

Actually it is (sort of) compatible with FF 4, you just need to trick it into installing. There is a patched version floating around that you can install, search for it.

I find that the "live" headers tool works, but the "Headers" tab in the page info window is broken (comes up blank).

Doesn't the Firebug console give you the same info?

You can use Fiddler, it is uber, there is a plugin but the standalone version is awesome.

No change in function for the plug-in at all. You open the plug-in's browser window and then whatever you do with the browser's location bar, all the related requests and responses show up in the window.
