Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I noticed a JavaScript error on the "Add Comment" link for this answer. I've never seen the behavior on any other answer before, but clicking the link produces the following error in Firebug:

w.find("textarea").charCounter is not a function 
var vote=function(){var l={informModerat...t.documentElement.scrollTop}}})(jQuery);

Because of the error the comment frame never displays and a comment cannot be posted.


Sorry I didn't mention it initially... I receive the error in Firefox 3.5.7. I do not receive the error in Chrome or Internet Explorer 8.

Update 2

Whatever the problem was, it has ceased now when I click that link. I have seen it approximately once more since I initially reported the issue, but it has been several weeks. If I see it again I'll update this post.

Huh, works fine for me in IE7. Why is there a ... in there? – mmyers Feb 11 '10 at 18:41
no-repro here, unfortunately. – Sampson Feb 11 '10 at 18:45
Works on my machine/platform/browser. – jjnguy Feb 11 '10 at 18:46
@mmyers: I copied the truncated output from Firebug. – Nathan Taylor Feb 11 '10 at 19:15
No-repro WinXP/FF 3.6 – Jon Seigel Feb 11 '10 at 19:23
It's behaving for me in FF 3.57 on Windows 7. I'll do some more tests on my work computer tomorrow and see if I can figure out what happened. – Nathan Taylor Feb 12 '10 at 4:46

no repro. Have you tried disabling all Firefox extensions / running in "safe mode"
