Firebug is great but...

I use FireBug all the time, it's an amazing tool for web developers. Leaving it enabled all the time causes Firefox to slow down considerably:

I need to be clear here: If you have Firebug installed you are probably not getting fast Javascript. Firebug doesn’t have to be active on your current page. If you have the grey icon on your status bar, you have probably disabled the JIT. This is true if you have ever enabled the Console and consequently the Script panels and left them on. This is likely true for most recent versions of Firebug. The quick fix is to disable the Script and Console panels via the mini menu on their respective tabs. - robcee It's pretty easy to disable and speed things up. Now I only enable it for sites I need to debug.
