I'm currently using Netbeans and I'm new at it. But I can't make it debug JavaScript because breakpoints just highlight the entire line red when I create one on a line.

I intend to do heavy PHP and JavaScript programming, with equal emphasis on BOTH, so it's important I find a very good IDE that can debug JavaScript.

Can anyone please refer me to a good one? Thanks in advance.

Try JavaScript Debugger in PHP IDE
In addition to powerful PHP Debugger PhpED comes in with built in Chrome browser and Chrome development tools, including JavaScript debugger. You can debug both PHP and JavaScript parts of your application in PhpED w/o ever leaving the IDE

This question is a little like, "Can anyone recommend a sports car that seats seven?"  I think you may find that you want more than one IDE in your life (and you probably want more than one monitor when you're doing dev work).  PHP runs on the server and is used to create the HTML documents, including the JavaScript, that runs on the client machine.  So finding a perfect IDE for PHP and a separate perfect IDE for JavaScript makes all the sense in the world to me, even if they are different IDEs.  If you like Netbeans, stick with it.  If you're looking for a client-side debugging tool, consider Chrome DevTools.  I don't have much experience with it, but what I've seen looks very, very good.

Aptana Studio - debug PHP and Javascript :)

For simple javascript debugging 'in-browser' use FireBug in Firefox.

As for breakpoints - don't they all hilight the whole line - you put a break point on a line of code and the debugger stops when it gets there. If you don't want to break on a line, what do you want to break on?
