It Done Broke.

WordPress & Firebug

WordPress 2.7
Firefox 3.1b2
Firebug 1.4X.0a12

The Firebug add-on for Firefox seems to have an odd effect on the WordPress administration panel.  I haven’t tested it thoroughly to figure out which pages or why (or in what other ways, or what other versions), but it unexpectedly reloads the post editing page.

That is, if you’re writing or editing a post it reloads it without warning.  It also seems to embed a copy of the whole page in the Categories <div> on the RHS…perhaps they’re related.  Turning Firebug off or disabling it for the page kills the problem.

I do realize that version-wise, I’m somewhat on the razor’s edge.

Update: WP 2.8, Firefox 3.5RC2 and Firebug 1.5X.0a05 works.
