The demand for Firefox is rising. If I may repeat my favourite feature: increasing and descreasing fornt size with ^+ and ^- is a delight for my eyes. Almost saves me from a new pair of glasses. It would be nice to start using FF in Visual Studio when building the app. Which is not that difficult but took some searching. Let me share with you how to set up FF in VS (2003).
- In the file menu is a “browse with“ option. Select this.
- Add Firefox to the list of supported browser and check “default“
In the options of your project set “always use IE“ to false
Now FF wil be the default browser when you launch your app from VS. Breakpoints and everything work as usual. When your project leans heavely on IE, for instance because you don’t want to miss smart navigation, you can instruct VS to keep using IE on a project basis. When you drop IE you also drop the possibility for remote debugging. But that’s something I had already given up.
