I have a few websites I'm responsible for that look like they're infinitely loading something. Is there a plugin for firefox like firebug that will allow me to see all the requests when I visit a page and which ones failed? Maybe firebug does this I just don't know where to look?

With Y-SLow you get an extra menu on firebug.
Install them.  Click on Y-SLow and then components and it shows all http requests from the page, how long they took and if any failed.

is this not the same thing?

In my firefox and firebug, under the "All" menu item, I can click on "net" and it shows pretty much the same info your firebug.jpg screenshot shows.

Y-Slow has extra screens for why components of the page fail or are slow.
That is what the question was after.  That is what I use.

I tried the yslow but it's getting stuck on "getting component information". Doesn't that defeat the purpose if I'm looking for things that are infinitely loading?

It seems to stop at the first item that doesn't load. That's a bit annoying because I will have to run the program multiple times if there are multiple issues. Not your fault though, you didn't make it.
