Using The Mozilla Source Server

This page is an import from MDN and the contents might be outdated

Using the Mozilla source server is now even more feature-packed. The nightly debug builds are now also Source Indexed so that by following a couple of simple steps you can also have the source code served to you for debugging without a local build

What you’ll need

Set up symbols

Follow the instructions for Using the Mozilla symbol server. Once the symbol path is set you must now enable Source Server.

Using the source server in WinDbg

In the WinDbg command line, type .srcfix and hit enter. This enables source server support.


Using the source server in Visual Studio

Source server support does not work correctly out of the box in Visual Studio 2005. If you install WinDBG, and copy srcsrv.dll from the WinDBG install dir to the Visual Studio install dir (replacing the existing copy) it will work.

Enable source server support under Tools -> Options. Also, disable (uncheck) the box that says “Require source files to exactly match the original version”.
