This is in fact a long working JS function in js-console.js but all JS 
seems unreachable somehow in Mozilla 1.5 so this should work, as if the 
JS file isn't included?!?

Thanks Phil, I will check the toolbar.xml because I think that is 
important to us, but I already used JS 1.7 (mostly array stuff) and that 
seems to work, but..

that doesn't work in js-console.js nor does

<window id="jsconsoleWindow"

in js-console.xul work.  It is as if the file isn't there, but it is 
included like this:

<script type="application/x-javascript" 

and that had been there's for I don't know how long, so there must me 
something wrong somehow.
