Can't set Debugger breakpoints

I can no longer set breakpoints in the Debugger. It have tried 3 different ways and nothing works. I click on the line number to set it and it acts like it will do it and then immediately refreshes without it being set. The prev.js file shws “pending” entries.

Which channel does this fail in?

Could you open the Browser Console from the tools menu and check it for related errors?

I’ve got a bit more info on this. I cannot set breakpoints either, but it appears to be for inline javascript. I’m using ASP.NET and have a script tag. It’s on the javascript inside that script tag that I can’t set a breakpoint. It seems like the debugger dosn’t recognize this as javascript. I’m on 67.0b10 Developer Edition


I’m having the same using Firefox Quantum 67.0.2 (64-bit).

I also have this problem with Quantum 67.0.2 (64 bit).

Cannnot set breakpoint in script with an aspx file . Works in a script file.

Same issue with Firefox Developer Edition 68b12 on Linux (Gnome Wayland). I cannot set breakpoints in a JS file…

The Browser console has no particular warnings/errors when I click on the JS debugger gutter to set a breakpoint.

I am experiencing same issue on FF 67.0.4 64bit .
work around / fix
I found a bothersome work around / fix. if close the devtools and refresh the page and then open devtools , then the adding breakpoints start to work.
but if I refresh the page while devtools are open , then after page refresh I can not add breakpoints by any method.

I am also on 67.0.4 (64-bit) and find the the JS inside script elements on a .aspx page has the line numbers light grey and inactive.
