Firefox proving an effective debugging tool RRS feed

    During recent development efforts, we have struggled to debug our mobile applications effectively. Only PDAs connected via ActiveSync gave us a reasonable chance at stepping through code in debug mode etc. Our publicly accessible server was deemed an inappropriate place to debug our mobile app from an actual phone!

    However, we have recently been using the Firefox Browser, and it's 'User Agent Switcher' extension to browse our mobile app in development. This allows us to pretend to be a given mobile phone, and view markup etc provided for that phone. Some bugs in device specific blocks have been found easily once we started using this approach.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to how better use Firefox?

    Are there any other tools for debugging or development that anyone has found useful??
