Is there a way to see javascript errors in firefox similiar to how IE works? I like how IE has the icon in the bottom left which notifies me that I have a js problem. I'm sure firefox has this, but I'm not sure how to get this working.

Thanks gits. Sorry for posting in the articles. I think this is the 4th time I've done this. Those links need to be moved apart farther. The options are all the same. Or I could just pay attention .. :-)

It really is, why didn't I find this a few months ago. Now I know all the element names so I can control them with js.

Is there anything similar to this for IE? It's hard to troubleshoot my javascript across IE and firefox as they both need different things.

Thanks I downloaded that, and it's pretty decent, but no where as close as firebug. It doesn't look through the script at all, it's more for css and just viewing the DOM.
