The best way to debug JavaScript issues is to use a JavaScript debugger.
My favorite JavaScript debugger is FireBug. FireBug is a plugin for FireFox and is very helpful for not only debugging JavaScript but also debugging CSS issues as well.

If you aren't satisfied with FireFox, you can try using IE8. It comes with debugging tools as well, but I find them a little harder to use.

Just because I can:

Firebug is not a plugin but an extension, or add-on. Plugins are executable programs that perform non-browser functions while add-ons are scripts that extend browser functions.

So there.

I wouldn't use IE8 for debugging since it has crippled DOM support and it's javascript ain't so good either.

in FF go to Extras -> Add-ons ... drop the downloaded xpi-file onto this window and follow the install steps. restart firefox -> in the bottom right corner you should find a 'bug'-icon ... click on it and activate all options for the page that should be observed by firebug ... now just explore the features and outputs of firebug and you will see how helpful this is ;)

kind regards

Just click on the Add to Firefox button (on the Add-ons page) and it should be fairly straightforward.

Gits instructions were pretty close to what you have to do, but as Dormilich pointed out, you should substitute the "extras" menu for the "tools" menu:
  • In the tools menu, click "add-ons"
  • In the "add-ons" dialogue click the "Get Add-ons" button
  • Type Firebug in the search field
  • Scroll down until you find FireBug (the icon is a red bug)
  • Click the "Add to FireFox" button....

Once FireBug is installed, you will see a little bug in the bottom right corner of FireFox. Click that little bug and FireBug will pop up. When this pops up FireBug may be "disabled". It will display a screen that will allow you to enable debugging for the site you're working on. Since you're debugging JavaScript you will have to enable Script debugging.

Once you've enabled Script debugging you can click the "Script" tab and off you go :)
