On Stack Overflow, I am trying to vote to delete and am getting the following error:

Uncaught TypeError: Property 'confirm' of object [object Object] is not a function

I see this in the Chrome console. (Without looking at the console, nothing appears to happen -- for obvious reasons.)

(For example, this question, though I tried a few.)

    What version of chrome? No repro here on Safari 6.0.3 (8536.28.10). – Richard J. Ross III Mar 26 '13 at 0:54
  • 25.0.1364.172 m. And you're right, I tried FireFox and it worked. (I tried clearing my caches in Chrome, but to no avail) – Kirk Woll Mar 26 '13 at 0:57
  • Have you voted to delete in the past with chrome? Or is this the first time you've tried deleting? – Richard J. Ross III Mar 26 '13 at 1:00

    Any extensions? – Doorknob Mar 26 '13 at 1:28
  • Not getting this in chrome Dev... – Cole Johnson Mar 26 '13 at 2:18

Turns out the culprit was a new extension I had installed for Chrome called "Better Pop Up Blocker". I hadn't considered it because I assumed it only attacked actual new browser windows, not JS alerts. Stupid of me not to have considered that, but thanks Doorknob for pointing out that possibility.

Apologies -- mods should feel free to close/delete as too localized. Otherwise I'll leave it up in case it might be a useful signpost for someone in the future.
