Firebug not working


I have downloaded fire bug on my Emachine E525 runing on linux mint 14. I have downloaded it on an up to date version of Mozzilla Firefox . The problem is on the console when i type in java script and hit run on the comand line it only returns the code i type in without the result for example if i where to type in. alert("don't panick") it would return alert("don't panick") instead of popping up an alert message.

I had the same problem until I found out it just minimized itself off the window at the bottom. Do you have the "firebug" button at the top right? if so try selecting detatched.
