Try this. Go into your profile, open prefs.js and write

user_pref("piggyBank.debug", true);
user_pref("piggyBank.debug.redirectJSConsole", true);
user_pref("piggyBank.debug.tracing.classloader", true);
user_pref("", true);
user_pref("piggyBank.debug.tracing.javascript", true);

in it, then open the Console program (from the Utilities folder),
apple-n for a new window, open the tree sidebar on the left and search
for ~/Library/java console.log (so you have the two piggybank outputs in
front of you).

That should give you more indication about what's going on.
