FlashTracer 2 for Firefox 2.0.*

I dont know what happened to the link of my FlashTracer extensions on Mozilla extensions page.. it simply has been removed.
It’s a while I don’t visit the mozilla developers corner and so I dont know the reason.. probably I had to update the extension for the final release of Firefox2, and they removed the link from the database..

Anyway, now the developer area is inaccessible until they release the new addons site. For this reason, for who want to download again the flashtracer extension can use this link:


I’ve also added my site as updateURL for this extension, so I dont have to care anymore about mozilla¬† changes on their site…
The extension itself has no new features, just some little changes and an help panel too. I’ve added the possibility of open the flashtracer in a floating window, as someone requested.

P.S. Remember that you can find all the Adobe Flash debug player versions here:  http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html

UPDATE: A new flash tracer called fbtracer has been released. This new extension is integrated into Firebug. Read more here

    Have you tested this on on a Mac OS 10.4? Great idea, but it doesn’t seem to work. I get the window, but no trace actions appears on either a live server hosted page or on a local page.

  • Nope, I’ve yet tested on Mac. But in the sidebar window (not the floating one) can you see the trace logs?

    Hi, I get this error using flash tracer 2.0 and 1.5:
    [Exception… “Component returned failure code: 0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND) [nsILocalFile.lastModifiedTime]” nsresult: “0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)” location: “JS frame :: chrome://trace/content/tracer.js :: readfile :: line 99” data: no]

  • This extension only seems to capture my trace comments on FP ver debug
    Any newer debug player doesn’t seem to work with the Flash Tracer extension.

  • I had the same problem on my MacBook (OS X 10.4.9) with Firefox and Flash Player Debug Version. I simply solved the problem with the hint on this site:
    The default location of flashlog.txt has changed and cannot be modified from the following locations:
    MacHD:Users:username:Library:Preferences:Macromedia:Flash Player:Logs:flashlog.txt
    C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player\Logs\flashlog.txt
