How to increase the buffer of the web console?

Posted

When developing JavaScript, I tend to generate a lot of logging output. In newer version of Firefox the buffer of the console window seems to be very small, so that most of my logs are being lost.

How can I increase the buffer size of the console? To be honest, I think this should be in the preferences menu.

Hello, you can increase buffer by opening "about:config" and clicking "i'll be careful i promise" and search for "devtools.hud.loglimit.console", here you can increase the value as you like.

Hope this works for you :)
