#8048 closed defect (fixed)

Firebug lite broken in 1.2.1 release

Reported by: mcbenton Owned by: James Burke
Priority: high Milestone: 1.2.2
Component: Core Version: 1.2.0
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


Downloaded this release:

Created a basic page with djConfig="isDebug:true" and in IE7 and Safari when you click on the DOM button in the debug console you get an error:

consoleDomInspector is undefined (in IE) Can't find variable: consoleDomInspector (in Safari)

It looks like somehow the build process didn't shrink the variables in dojo/_firebug/firebug.js (line 107).

I tried a custom build with the same code base ( and this problem didn't occur.

My guess is this is the old shrinksafe bugs about variables declared after functions that use those variables do not get the right variable substitution.

A quick fix may be to move all the var declarations to the top of the anon function before the window.console work happens in _firebug/firebug.js.

This probably shows up in the release vs a custom build since the release does an optimize=shrinksafe in the build command where the custom build may not be specifying that. If it is not specified, then shrinksafe is not run on the _firebug/firebug.js file.

Stealing this since i'm currently working in firebug.js, but Mike please check my work since you are more familiar with it.
