Trace all javascript functions executed while navigating between multiple windows

When I am hitting a URL in my browser, I am navigating through different web pages (probably because of page forwarding code in each web page that is opened). After the final page is loaded, when I looked for the executed javascripts through F12 DeveloperTools(IE), Firebug(FF) & Developer Tools(Chrome), found the scripts that were most recently executed for the last page that is opened. I want to see all javascripts that were executed as I am passing through different pages. Is it possible?

I have never come across any plugin that records all events from all pages.

I doubt that you will find such a thing.  In general, javascript is 'sandboxed' between windows for security so that one site can't get info from or about another.

Can we debug javascripts line by line starting from first page to last page? Can we use IE developer tools' JavascriptDebug option for it?

Once you move from one page to another the previous code is gone from memory

Add a breakpoint, refresh the page and then just step through the code.

You can't hold old pages data "in memory."  I think you need to debug the scripts page-by-page.  You're trying to look for something that browser security deliberately makes invisible.
