Trying to do a brain-dump of things I’ve encountered at my new job, since I’ve been doing work in several new areas.
My employer’s website was crashing on IE7. When I tried to re-create the issue on my IE8 machine, it crashed for me as well. Also crashed when I put IE8 in IE7 mode (the Developer Tools are quite nice).
After some fighting and many browser restarts, I did the following:
- Set my home page to about:blank
- Start the debugger on the homepage with the options to break immediately
- Go to the URL that I need to debug
Simple, right? It took me a while to consider that the debugger would actually stay ON as I traveled away from about:blank to a new URL, rather than turning itself off.
