Using Chrome, I am having this error when I refresh a page on Stack Overflow and open the developer tool:

WebSocket connection to 'ws://sockets.ny.stackexchange.com/' failed: Unexpected response code: 502 full.js?v=f9e9cb812ede:13

PS. Also, the copy/pasting feature does not work when you try to Ctrl + V to paste a print screen.

Chrome version: 29.0.1547.62 m

OS: Windows 7

    Also copy/pase feature does not work when you try to Ctrl+v to pase a print screen - considering the editor is a text editor, that is not surprising. Sep 6, 2013 at 16:14
  • What version of chrome are you using?

  • @psubsee2003 I don't get your point, I am using a chrome widget that I used to use in stackoverflow without issues. Sep 6, 2013 at 16:39

    What psubsee2003 is saying, is that Control-V is not supposed to work as a way to paste images into a SE question. If you have an extension/widget that is meant to provide that functionality, and it's not working, well, you should maybe bring that up with the widget author. Sep 6, 2013 at 16:43
  • I get these from time to time as well. It is either your internet dropping packets, or theirs hitting some sort of connection limit at times. Either way, I have never noticed it to have more of an impact than the warning/error messages themselves. Your post script (PS) is not relevant to this topic.

    @psubsee2003 it does work when you open the image upload dialog and click CTRL+V - it's supported only by Chrome though and was added pretty recently. :) Sep 6, 2013 at 20:26
  • @ShaWizDowArd but it is a Chrome feature or a SE feature? Sep 6, 2013 at 21:12
  • @psubsee2003 Stack Exchange feature, added by demand. Guess it's using HTML5 feature available only in Chrome. Sep 6, 2013 at 21:23
  • @ShaWizDowArd - We actually feature detect here. And yes, at the moment, only Chrome seems to support it.
