An Umbraco version of the quplog Backfire project (http://blog.quplo.com/2010/08/backfire-save-css-changes-made-in-firebug/) which allows you to save CSS changes made in Firebug back to Umbraco

How To Use
Install the package, and make sure the compilation debug attribute is set to true (Make sure to set this to false when you go live). Now when you visit your site, you'll see a new bar at the bottom with a Save CSS Changes button. Just make some changes via Firebug and click the Save CSS Changes button to push back to Umbraco.

Uninstall doesn't currently clean up everything. After uninstall, make sure you remove any HttpModules with the name Backfire4Umbraco.

System Requirements

  • Umbraco 4.5.x
  • .NET 3.5+
  • Firefox + Firebug plugin

Change Log

  • Fixed casing issue
  • Removed dependency on css files needing to be in /css folder


  • Added extra security. Button bar only displays if you are logged in, and have access to the settings section


  • Develop Firebug extension for better integration

Thanks to Warren Buckley for the package suggestion, and help testing.
