I would like to see the console.log statement in my javascript code. In the android browser this is possible by issuing "about:debug", however this did not work in firefox. Does anyone know how to display the javascript console in firefox?

Gecko will output Javascript warnings, information and errors through the system Android logging mechanism. You can run logcat through the Android Debug Bridge (available as a tool in the Android SDK) in order to see output.

The better way to access the error console is via the Firefox remote debugging tool. You will need a copy of desktop Firefox and Firefox for Android. Then follow the directions at http://starkravingfinkle.org/blog/2012/10/firefox-for-android-remote-web-console-is-here/
