Can anybody suggest a good javascript debugger?

I am still in the begining stages of javascript and am having a heck of a time with debugging.

Thanx for your help.

There are commercial programs that others may recommend as well as some free ones perhaps but, I recommend getting the latest FireFox browser and using its javascript console.

The Firefox Javascript console is excellent, but for more complex projects you might want to try the Venkman Javascript debugger (https://addons.mozilla.org/addon.php?id=216), available as an addon to Firefox.

Thanks !!! I'll try it! I had some troubles with my javascript a few days ago, and I have found the built-in javascript console in Firefox a bit clumsy (eg. in an outer js file there's a function, and I wanted to see the value of its variable in runtime ...)

I got this tool and it launched once from the tools menu after installation and restart of FF, now it does nothing, any ideas?

Hm, no. I'd just point out that Firefox has to be compiled without --disable-jsd, which can be achieved by adding "mozdevelop" to the USE flags under Gentoo.

John: the third comment down seems to have had the same problem as you.
