Quasar, VSCode and breakpoints

  • Hi

    I added the following to launch.json

        "version": "0.2.0",
        "configurations": [
            "type": "firefox",
            "request": "launch",
            "name": "vuejs: firefox",
            "url": "http://localhost:8080",
            "webRoot": "${workspaceFolder}/src",
            "firefoxExecutable": "C:\\Users\\user\\Downloads\\Portable\\FirefoxPortable\\App\\firefox64\\firefox.exe",
            "pathMappings": [{ "url": "webpack:///src/", "path": "${webRoot}/" }]        

    Breakpoints were set, Firefox is running, debug is working… oh wait, it’s not.

    1. The code is stopping where there are no breakpoints.
    2. Where there are breakpoints, the code is not stopping.
    3. F5/F10 lead to crazy locations in the code.
    4. If the code stops at a breakpoint and I remove it, it keeps stopping there as if it’s still there.
      All the above is making debug with Firefox impossible. Am I the only one with this problem or maybe no one is debugging using Firefox?
      edit: it looks like adding “sourceMaps”: “client” improves things a bit but point 4 still occurs for example.

  • Even sourceMaps messes things up, it stops where no one asked it to stop and even if I remove all breakpoints, it insists on stopping there…

  • No one here is using Firefox for debugging?
