the IE) errors are not showing.
3. For these kinds of errors It is required to check agian in IE.
4. This doubles my work.

You bug report is a little bit confusing (and one of the important things are
missing : The Firefox Version)
Do you have a problem that there are no errors shown in the Javascript console
(that works for me in FF1.0.1) or Do you want an enhancement bug that there
should be an option for a popup with such errors ?

we don't currently support the microsoft script debugger, but you can use our
javascript debugger, this is either invalid because you're confused, worksforme
because there's a debugger you could use, a duplicate of a bug to add support
for the ms debugging apis, or hopefully a duplicate of some bug asking for an
indicaton that there were errors relating to scripts in the current page.

Marking invalid. Reporter, if you have specific suggestions, search bugzilla and
if you don't find it, feel free to reopen this bug, but add a clear description
of what this bug is about.
