David Flanagan's Javascript - The definitive guide is a classic. It tells you of data types, DOM, events, objects, arrays and other relevant basics. It includes a nice reference as well.

Stay away from frameworks while you're trying to master javascript. Frameworks are great for fast development and deployment of more complex applications, but you won't learn any Javascript from using them. Actually, having basic knowledge of Javascript helps in understanding and using frameworks.

Just my 2 cents...

i just started plowing through this recently and there is a lot of good advice concerning best practices.
much of what is discussed addresses the framework incompatibility issues mentioned in this thread.
