    How can I debug JavaScript scripts in FireFox?

    Hello guys,

    I'm new to JavaScript. I've heard about debugging in IE, so I'm asking is it possible to debug JS scripts in browser (Firefox 2, Mac OS X)?

    If it's possible, what plugins/software do I need to do that?

    Get yourself the web developer toolbar ... I use it for everything including debugging JS

    For firefox
    Apart from the web developer toolbar you can try
    Firebug http://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/1843 (excellent)
    and venkman http://www.mozilla.org/projects/venkman/ (have not tried extensivelly)


    For IE:
    Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
    But I personally have not succeeded installing it
