    A Windows IDE for Javascript?

    I have recently installed Firebug, hoping to use it as an IDE for Javascript in Windows.

    But I'm obviously missing something very basic since, although I can display HTML files containing Javascript scripts, can set breakpoints and can step through the coding a line at a time, I find I cannot edit any of my Javascript code within Firebug.

    So (a) how is this done, precisely, if it is possible, or (b) can you recommend an alternative FreeWare IDE for Javascript in Windows?

    Many thanks.

    Firebug is not an IDE, it's a debugging tool at best.

    To create and edit JavaScript files may I suggest Komodo, Aptana, or perhaps Notepad++.
