I want a Firefox add-on to know where time is being spent in my Web Application.

Check out Yahoo's YSlow, it works in combination with the Firebug Firefox addon.

YSlow analyzes web pages and suggests ways to improve their performance based on a set of rules for high performance web pages. YSlow is a Firefox add-on integrated with the Firebug web development tool. YSlow grades web page based on one of three predefined ruleset or a user-defined ruleset. It offers suggestions for improving the page's performance, summarizes the page's components, displays statistics about the page, and provides tools for performance analysis, including™ and JSLint.

Another option is the Charles web debugging proxy. It's a very useful tool for web application development in general (both javascript and flash), and one of the features is a chart showing all the objects/requests loaded, and the time they take.

Page Speed (again with Firebug) would be another option.

Yes. It's a Chrome/Chromium extension. I'm sorry it's not exactly an answer. – alfplayer Dec 26 '09 at 19:06
