|How do I see full page error messages from Firefox?|
In IE, I get a verbose error - In Firefox, I get a small java alert.
Basically, I code ASP applications and when I used IE all I needed to do was to enable the Java Console.
What happens when a page errors out is that I get a full error page displayed - most often with the type of error listed, and a line # at which it occurred.
In Firefox, I get a small java alert that pops up and says the page just ain't gonna load.
Is there a way to enable the same type of verbose error page as IE displays - but in Firefox?
Firefox has an error console too(better than IE's). In the "Tools" menu.
How can I enable verbose error pages?
Like, so instead of ---
[Alert Box Pop-Up]
The connection to www.yourdomain.com has been terminated unexpectedly. Some data may have been transferred.
I get an error like this ---
The page cannot be displayed
Cannot find server or DNS Error
Try entering about:config in the address bar - go down to:
change it to true.
Or if your really lazy you can download this extension [extensionroom.mozdev.org]. AFAIK it just makes the change in about:config for you.
Actually... it also shows the troubled location (like if you were redirecting to an unresolvable page) in the URL field as well - so it's worth the 2 second DL.
Thanks for the help.
