A bug was introduced in the javascript on the /users/edit page - a fix is being rolled out now.

I can't edit my profile either. I get the same error. – user161041 Apr 27 '11 at 21:35
Is this bug back? – Aaron Bertrand Mar 2 '14 at 0:48
@AaronBertrand looks like there is a new bug - fixing. – Jarrod Dixon Mar 2 '14 at 4:09
@AaronBertrand while there was a javascript error being generated after a blur event, it wouldn't have affected profile saving. I answered the other report I linked earlier. – Jarrod Dixon Mar 2 '14 at 6:36
