Are there any development tools out there you can use to capture javascript event as they are firing as to help determine which frame/window/element to setup to catch the event with. Maybe real-time, maybe logging? Doesn't matter. I can image how this might work but by no means do I have the time at the moment to create a plug-in of this sort. Does anyone know of anything that might have a functionality like this?

Firefox has a couple of extensions that offer Javascript debugging. Check out "Firebug" or "Venkman" (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/216), maybe they are what you are looking for.
But mind you: since Firefox 3 has only just come out, the Mozilla servers may still be somewhat overloaded and slow in response.

Yeah, I'm pretty familiar with firebug but it doesn't have a feature like I am wanting. No way to see the events being fired and where they came from. I will have a look at Venkman.

Kravimir, the event spy looks like what I want but I haven't got to try it yet. I'll post back soon.
