Q.  How do I get warnings about undeclared variables in javaScript?

A.  In Firefox, go to

about:config
And set
javascript.options.strict = true
This is like perl's "use strict;". It also, helpfully, warns about variables with overlaping scope. Since this generates lots of warning from things I don't control (eg jQuery). I prefer to just turn it on occasionally.
