Trouble with debugger

I'm new to WebStorm and everything seems to be working pretty well except for one problem... When I click "Run" WS opens a new tab in my existing browser window, loads my project's page, and everything works great. However, if I click "Debug" WS starts a new browser window and the tab simply loads my default browser web page (i.e., my project page never loads). The behavior is the same for both the Firefox and Chrome browsers. Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong?

WS 9.0.3. I don't have the Chrome ext, but I normally use Firefox. The Edit Configurations dialog seemed to indicate that both Firefox and Chrome are supported. Is Firefox not supported in debug mode?

Up to version 33. Debugging in FireFox 33+ is not available due to Firefox API changes that made it incompatible with WebStorm debugger. https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/WEB-13801 is fixed, initial support is available in WebStorm 10 EAPs

Ah, ok, that bug report matches exactly what I'm seeing. I'll debug in Chrome until WS v10. Thanks!
