Waiting for gg.google.com

I am developing a Google Maps module for Sitecore, and when I test it in Firefox my Google Javascript won’t load. All I get is: “Waiting for gg.google.com…”.

It seemes to be a problem with certain versions of Firefox and Firebug. If Firebug has Script debugging enabled, the Google Maps script will not load.

Disabling Script debugging in Firebug solves the problem:

But now I cannot debug the Javascript I am creating using Firefox. Well… I’m glad I got Google Chrome.

    This was driving me nuts, never occurred to me that it was Firebug (even though I’ve run into it before… duh)

    Thank you as well, had a long night trying to trace this down.

    Guess I’m gonna have to rely on Chrome for debugging Maps.. argh.

    I’ve successfully developed Firefox+Firebug+GMaps some 5-6 months ago and it went ok.. Darn bugs :)

    Thanks again !

    Quick solution : Firebug with Script panel disabled, blackbird (http://www.gscottolson.com/blackbirdjs/) for logging. Seems ok for now.

    Yes, thank you. It was driving me crazy also. Come to think of it, I upgraded the other day. Must have caused the problem.

    I find the SAME problem happens intermittently on google chrome, so I don’t think we can assume it is solely a firebug problem :( Still unresolved for me …

    This happens to me all the time. Once I see gg.google.com in the status line – I just hit refresh (ctrl F5) – and my site loads fine.
