Increasing the logging verbosity
--------------------------------
To increase the internal logging verbosity you can use the
`remote.log.level` [preference].
If you use mach to start Firefox:
./mach run --setpref "remote.log.level=Trace" --remote-debugging-port
By default, long log lines are truncated. To print long lines in full, you
can set `remote.log.truncate` to false.
Enabling logging of emitted events
----------------------------------
To dump events produced by EventEmitter,
including CDP events produced by the Remote Agent,
you can use the `toolkit.dump.emit` [preference]:
./mach run --setpref "toolkit.dump.emit=true" --remote-debuggiing-port
Logging observer notifications
------------------------------
[System observer notifications] are used extensively throughout the
code and it can sometimes be useful to log these to see what is
available and when they are fired.
The `MOZ_LOG` environment variable controls the C++ logs and takes
the name of the subsystem along with a verbosity setting. See
[prlog.h] for more details.
MOZ_LOG=ObserverService:5
You can optionally redirect logs away from stdout to a file:
MOZ_LOG_FILE=service.log
This enables `LogLevel::Debug` level information and places all
output in the file service.log in your current working directory.
[preference]: ./Prefs.html
