Webstorm Browser Compatibility

What versions of Firefox and Chrome are compatible with Webstorm 2.1.5?

I am currently evaluating the software and I will not purchase this software unless I can run and debug by code in a browser.  At the moment Firefox is unable to install the plugin as it is at version 8, and complains of an invalid URL, so I was thinking of using Chrome, but if I get similar issues this will be no good to me.

If you can help that would be most appreciated.



Hi Simon,

You need v3, which is about to be released. You can download RC build from here: http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/WI/Web+IDE+EAP


OK - have installed version 3.  Now when I select RUN, with a simple html page - it only shows a blank tab in Firefox and nothing happens.  If Firefox is already open it says

"Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system."

Any ideas?


I manually installed the plugin, and things seem to work - so thanks guys.


Has to be some sort of misconfiguration of your Run configuration.

Please search this forum -- there was a thread with  exact instructions no so long ago (within 1 month, I believe).  Instructions were for Google Chrome .. but the same (or almost the same)  will apply to Firefox as well.
