FireFox Javascript Console Tutorial

P: n/a
Anyone have any links for a good tutorial on the FireFox Javascript Console?

In particular, I am looking for information on the capabilities of the
Evaluate box. (1) I can put multiple statements separated by ';'s on a
single line into the box and have it evaluated, but I can not seem to
put multiple lines into the box (or make it bigger so multiple lines
will fit). (2) I would like to test a function from the current web-page
by entering the function call in the Evaluate box, like 'MyFunc("A test
string, 123")'.
