Find out if there is any JavaScript error on a page

Your plugin broke another plugin, help me to fix it.

A very common support request I get. So the problem is, something went wrong in JavaScript and it’s giving you an error. So how do you find out what error came in? Let me show you

Debugging on Firefox

  1. Install firebug add-on and restart your browser
  2. Follow the image instruction:
    Firebug JavaScript error console

Debugging on Chrome

  1. You don’t need to install any additional add-on/extension for Google Chrome
  2. Right click on the page and click “Inspect ElementGoogle chrome context menu
  3. Follow the image:
    Google chrome JavaScript console

Clicking on the script name will show you which script is generating this error. So happy finding bugs :)
