FF and Chrome won't allow me to stop unresponsive script
FF and Chrome won't allow me to stop an unresponsive script, that is, a popup doesn't appear that gives me the choice. I'm fairly new at JS, but understand the basics, and there's a simple JS file I'm working on, but when I edit it and refresh my page in Firefox or Google, I just get the Mac colored pinwheel and the popup that would normally appear, never appears. Seems that now Firefox has finally displayed the popup but not Chrome. FF did it after about 4 or 5 minutes, which means that, at this rate I'll never get my script debugged. Is there some way to stop an unresponsive script sooner in FF, or to even stop it at all in Chrome?
chrome js script debug problem
I'm on a Mac so f12 only raises the volume. I can hit "fn" and f12 and get the developer tools, but that's not the problem. When I have the dev tools open and I refresh a page with an unresponsive script, I never get the chance to stop the script from running and then to debug it. No popup ever appears so I can stop the script and start to debug. I'd like to be able to use the Chrome tools, but I can't. Get it?
