Wouldn't hurt to pick up SQL while at PHP, or ASP.NET if you decide on that route. Personally, I think there's a bigger market for .NET, but it's all logic at the end of the day.
I use FF2 at home and Firebug is a godsend. However It is Mozilla/FF and it can't help you when IE7 doesn't use particular attribute/property, even if IE6 can. IE has a debugging environment but they try to lock you in to VBScript and that doesn't help if you want FF to understand it fully.
You can also get FF Portable and Firebug for that. That way you can tinker at any machine and then try with the machine's resident settings/browser. I check my site live with it in public libraries. If it works there it will anywhere!!!!

If you just started learning, I would highly suggest you learn to hand code first. My friends made fun of me that I am an old timer, but the fact is when you learn to hand code, you gain a much better understanding of how things work, and when you use programs such as Dreamweaver, these programs are not always reliable, when things go wrong you will know exactly how to fix it by looking at the codes.
I will suggest that you should only try to learn SQL besides all what you have learnt. I think that is enough & will surely pay you in the upcoming time.
