Question: 

Javascript debugging will not work, when I try to debug the page hangs and nothing happens in Komodo, even though Komodo states there is a debugging session.

Answer: 

The current JavaScript debugger included with Komodo 4 has a known incompatibility with the 'Flashgot' Firefox extension, first reported here:

http://community.activestate.com/forum-topic/cant-debug-javascript-komod...

The user reports that uninstalling Flashgot solved the issue. There may be incompatibilities with other Firefox extensions, so if you are having similar problems but do not have Flashgot installed, try this approach to troubleshooting the problem:

- in the Firefox Addons manager, disable all extensions except for JSLib and the Komodo JS Debugger
- verify that JS debugging now works
- try enabling your extensions one by one and re-test JS debugging. This should allow you to identify which extension is causing the problem.
- please report the incompatible extension in the comments to this FAQ.

You need to close down flashget.exe as well as disabling/removing the extension.
