    How do you watch variables at a FireBug breakpoint?

    Hi
    I have been following a FireBug breakpoint insertion tutorial and I'm able to stop on the breakpoint. However I am seeing not much utility in this unless you can get a read out of all variable values at this point. So how do you do this. It seems like it should be obvious, but I am not finding FireBug tutorials that show this.

    Sincerely
    Marc

    Hi
    I found out I had a Firefox extension conflict and that FireBug indeed gives you a spill out of all your variables. I may start a new thread here about finding an extension conflict with FireBug if my own ideas of turning back on the extensions fail.

    I thank you for your concern.
    Marc

    to put a watch:

    Firebug, "Script" tab selected:
    Look at the the right frame, where it says "New watch expression..."

    Click that text, type in your variable to watch, e.g. document.forms[ 0 ]
    My outdated site is down for a while now.
