Firebug Console window presents no Command line (>>>>)

Hi,

I'm running Rails 2.3.5, Ruby 1.8.6, WinXP-Pro/SP3, Firefox 3.6.2,
Firebug 1.5.3,
MySQL 5.0.37-community-nt, Mongrel

I have a toy .html file displayed in Firefox. When I press F12, a
window opens at the bottom of the screen with a menu bar offering
Console, Html, etc.

The console tab presents a sub-menu: Clear, Persist, Profile that have
tooltips working. Other than that, the Console pane is empty.

Documentation at http://michaelsync.net/2007/09/15/firebug-tutorial-commandline-api
suggests I should see a textbox at the bottom prefixed with ">>>>".

What must I do to get an active textbox at the bottom of my Console
pane?

Thanks in Advance,
Richard

This topic hasn't garnered any interest, so I'm abandoning my attempts
to fix the installed version and will re-install. So this thread is
closed as far as I'm concerned.

lol, well not exactly rails related, but my guess is that it was in
multi-line mode. you would see a textarea box to the right. You can type
your console commands into that field the same as the single line.
