I mostly use the script tab and set breakpoints. Then you can view the Dom at that point in time. Also If I'm having problems with particular variables I put those in the watchlist. It's really just like any other debugger so there aren't that many firebug specific techniques that aren't just good debugging techniques.

After having to debug code you may write code differently. For example I always set variables like query and msg and response before sending the db call or whatever just so i have a query variable to debug. If your code is full of function(text and fuctiom2(response) + 23) type of stuff where you build the function variables right there inline, it makes debugging difficult.
