firefox + loading script from file = not well-formed message #36

I get not well-formed messages in the javascript log when working with a html+js page on the file system.
It might be related to firefox attempting to parse the ajax response as JSON.

I tried to find a workaround, but except turning the function name feature off (which is working), I didn't find a solution.

This seems to work, at least for me:
if(url.indexOf("file://")==0 && typeof(req.overrideMimeType=='function')) req.overrideMimeType("text/javascript");

Can you post file, on which you get this error?

Also can you try req.responseType='text'; right after req.open('GET', url, false);

RedAdder's solution worked for me too.

victor-homyakov, I tried your suggestion and got the following error message:

Use of XMLHttpRequest's responseType attribute is no longer supported in the synchronous mode in window context. @ file:///javascript-stacktrace/stacktrace.js:308

OK, I'll look into this problem more closer.

This looks like it was a problem with using synchronous ajax for guessing function names. This should be fixed for v1.0.
