Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I cannot find anyone else who is affected by this bug, so I am reluctant to believe it is actually a bug with google chrome.

To better understand what I am dealing with here I have created a short video of what is happening.


It appears Javascript is not executed while the developer tools are open however I cannot be certain that is the only issue.

I have un-installed google chrome and chromium and removed their associated folders in the ~/.cache directory. Then re-installed chrome using sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable however the problem persists.

Any help tracking down why this is happening and how I might circumvent it would be greatly appreciated!

Doesn't happen to me. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 with Chrome dev 17. What is that showing up in the console's call stack? Looks like there's some breakpoint set up. (You can see it's the console stopping the code from executing because of the play like button and the 'Paused' written in the right window) Try looking at all the breakpoints and making sure none of them are ticked? –  Some Guy Jan 11 '12 at 15:52
Most likely, it'll be the load breakpoint, under Event Listener Breakpoints. –  Some Guy Jan 11 '12 at 16:03
@Amaan Thankyou! you made me re-look at the console and I noticed I had pause on all exceptions enabled. Duhhh! Hard to see that little blue guy down there. –  rlemon Jan 11 '12 at 16:03
Sure. I think you should add what solved it as an answer and mark it for the Googlers who may come here. –  Some Guy Jan 11 '12 at 16:08
