In addition to Firebug, the ‘Clear Cache Button’ toolbar add-on has saved me countless hours of poring over code and wondering why my changes didn’t work. Answer: They did, but the cache bit me.

Also, if you’ve got a bug that’s IE only and are forced to use the wretched thing, it’s useful to have the Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar - which isn’t Firebug, but it’s not bad. There’s also a commercial product (free for personal use) called DebugBar which looks to be a Firebug clone for IE and provides full JS debugging ability.
