Firefox Private Browsing Causes ‘Script Panel was inactive during page load’ Message in Firebug
I recently upgraded to the new version of the Firebug plugin on Firefox. When I did, every time I brought up the Firebug Scripts panel it displayed the same message: “Script Panel was inactive during page load.”
I would click the button to “Activate Firebug for the selected tab”, and the page would refresh, but I would then see the same Script Panel message as before.
After some searching on the interwebs I found out it was because I had Private Browsing enabled in Firefox. I didn’t even realize it; I had set it to not remember or keep any history but Firefox treats that setting as a private browsing session.
Once I disabled the Private Browsing feature in Firefox, my Firebug Scripts panel worked again.
