Works on my machine. So, I pass off a link to the appropriate page to my boss (who needed this) and it doesn't do a thing except initialize. No reaction to text (onkeyup, onblur). He sends it off to another IT user - also doesn't work.
So, this AM I try it on a VM (I normally work from a real computer) - figuring that my box's setup is the problem. Nope. Works on the VM, too.
Now I have to wait for a willing soul to come in and send them the link - and see what happens. If it works on theirs (or not) there's still a problem and I cannot see it to find it, let alone know if I fixed it. No warnings in the debugger.
Something of a deja vu. Maybe even a deja vudeja vu (having a feeling of deja vu that you feel you've had, before).
Eventually, I'll beat it, but I anticipate much frustration in the path.
So - I sent my boss a detailed step-by-step for using the FireFox debugger.
He did note that his VM version worked, his local machine didn't
As he stepped through from the break point I had him set (local machine), everything worked.
He closed his browser, restarted it, and now it all works.
Something, somewhere, was reset - and perhaps we'll never know.
Makes me think of something akin to unstuffing a stuffed latrine with a plunger
FireFox shop around here - and I know they were using it because of the screen-shots they sent.
The two failures, so far, are 90 minutes away - hence, I need a local failure of some sort so I can debug it the old-fashioned way: with moving alert()'s and commenting-out, to see where it fails.
A royal pain awaits me - and I may need to do this by phone.
I'm not sure that vodka is the answer to your problem, but I think it's worth a shot...
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - I'd just like a chance to prove that money can't make me happy. Me, all the time
