WebStorm 10.0.4 : how to debug JS with FireFox

Your documentation otherwise suggests that it is now possible to debug javascript with FireFox. It also states that there is no need to 'install' an extension : wrong for Chrome, I had to install your extension and configure it by hand.

My question : is there a FireFox extension that i can get somewhere to use that broswer for debugging ?

Note also that this solution only works in FireFox 33-35. FireFox 36+ is not yet supported:( (https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/WEB-15696)

Doesnt work for me...
When I follow the steps with my installed Firefox I get a popup saying

"Cannot connect to IDE.
Make sure that JavaScript Debugger plugin is enabled"

There is also no automatic installation of the plugin.

I use Firefox 31.8 ESR, does WebStorm support debugging with that version?

EDIT: It was indeed the version. Now it works...
