Question JavaScript Editor/Debugger?

Yea this maybe a dumb question but I need reference to a good one.

Now when I say "GOOD" one, I don't require a "GREAT" one that has a billion features and all kinds of endless bells and whistles.

I'm looking for your basic run of the mill JavaScript editor that also has the built in Debugger in it. Nothing to crazy....

I'm already having a headache with JavaScripting, and to be honest, the biggest headache is trying to find a good editor and/or trying to use the one I do have.

The one I am currently using is "Microsoft's Visual Web Developer 2008", it just seems like a major headache, I haven't quite figured it out and its been a major pain in the but trying to navigate it.

Please please please help!

Ok thanks, yes I downloaded Firebug, got to the chapter in the book where it talked about Debuggers and that was also the main one that seems to be the preferred choice in debugging JavaScript.

I have another question...

If I were to want to be a full blown Web Designer, starting out basically doing freelance work, but then having the knowledge/practice to turn it into a full blown career...

What would be suggestions on things that I need to look at getting?

Software to make my life easier as a Web Designer?

I started out my degree thinking I was going one direction and what I am finding is that I am really enjoying my Web Designing classes much much more. In high school even I picked up old HTML just for fun, never had a class in HS, just designed pages for friends and local business in raw HTML. Course now adays its gotten more advanced and I have already done my HTML 4.01/XHTML/CSS course and love all the new upgrades.

JavaScript has so far been a bit challenging, but for some reason its not getting me down or intimidating me nearly as much as some of my Networking courses... maybe just because I am more comfortable as a Web programmer and I enjoy it more. For some reason the challenge in this course is exciting as opposed the challenge in my Networking course, I absolutely hated the Networking course. LOL

I don't foresee issues with XML, and I am pretty sure I understand that between HTML/XHTML/CSS + JavaScript/SQL + XML, this is just the tip of the ice burgh.

But like I said, I am enjoying all of it so far, and think maybe I might change my elective options into more of a Web Design/Analyst background. It seems those jobs as well are still thriving depending where you are, and I figure until I am comfortable and have all the tools under my belt to become a full blown designer as a career, I could do some freelance work for some small businesses.

Thanks in advance for any replies!
