Javascript debugging - do I really need to close FF down each time?

Firefox not running, debug from IDEA, FF starts, JS debugging works fine.

Firefox already running, debug from IDEA doesn't work.

Surely I must have something configured incorrectly. It takes 8 seconds from when I press debug in IDEA until Firefox is loaded and a breakpoint on my first line of code is triggered. Which of course is unacceptable for debugging. Plus remembering to close down FF.

Firebug reacts instantly to a page refresh.

Am I doing something wrong, or are people tolerating this delay?

I'm just wondering if Netbeans had the same problem, hence removing Javascript debugging from their product.

Which version of IDEA do you use? Also please specify your OS.

Hmm, JavaScript debugger shouldn't require Firefox restarting. What do you mean by "debug doesn't work"? Does IDEA show 'Connected to' message in the
debug tool window? Also please try to disable Firebug to see if it helps.
