Silverlight plugin timeout in Firefox while debugging


FF silverlight plugin crash report 45 seconds just is not enough for me to jump over all of the hurdles when doing Silverlight debugging. Per new changes in Firefox (http://kb.mozillazine.org/index.php?title=Plugin-container_and_out-of-process_plugins&printable=yes), you’ll see the crash report after 45 seconds of plugin hanging, which is MUCH better than previous bringing the whole firefox down!

But it would not be Firefox if they have not had a setting for it!

Setting root is dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.npctrl.dll and you’ll get to it by entering about:config into the address bar:

change plugin timeout value in FF

My current setting is 5 minutes, normally VS 2010 is going crazy on me around that time of silverlight debugging anyway, surrounding me with zombies!

This it it and happy debugging to You :)!
