SuperDev mode with Firefox in GWT 2.7.0?

Is it possible to use SuperDev mode with Firefox, just like it worked with normal Dev mode?

I am still using an older version of FF with normal Dev mode and just tried SuperDev mode with FF, and that didn't work.
The Eclipse console output says it completed compiling (no errors) (compiling permutation 0).
During compiling, FF shows that it's compiling the module, and then when compiling completes FF shows the famous dark screen saying "Plugin failed to connect to Development Mode server at". And not further message appear in the Eclipse console output of the Dev Mode console.

+ I don't use the Eclipse GWT plugin, simple use my own lauch scripts to start the Dev mode with "-noserver".
+ I run all in java 8 and just upgraded to gwt 2.7.0.
+ GWT compilation runs with success.

Please some advice on this?
