The Development Guide chapter on debugging doesn't actually mention the word debugging.

This makes figuring out how to debug difficult.

I created a dummy add-on. Specified the 32 bit version of IE as the executable (start browser with url). Defined a bunch of events. Added a command. Built, set loads of break points, launched, all the break point circles remained solid red.

And no break points are hit.

What is the trivial step I'm missing?

Hi Perry,

Did you try to utilize the "Attach to process" option (see the Debug main menu of Visual Studio | Attach to process... )? Also please have a look at the similar forum thread. Does it help?

Anyway, thank you for pointing this to me. We will definitely add such section in the documentation!
