I've tried it, but what I need is firefox built with
-DDEBUG type options.

I've been trying. I've changed
Which works when run as firefox, but e.g. 'firefox -h' for instance
will print the help followed by crashing (even without trying my
components), and it doesn't seem to produce any diagnostics.

But it takes quite a while to build and the scripts (/usr/bin/firefox
is a script to load the firefox script, which loads the binary) seem
to try to supress stdout/stderr, so I was hoping someone else had
