I logged what I believed to be a Firefox bug with Mozilla. Further investigation seems to now point toward jQuery.

Please see the following Stack Overflow question for details: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8218098/firefox-does-not-properly-handle-try-catch-blocks-in-window-onerror

You will find the link to the Mozilla bug report as well as the test case that demonstrates the issue. I have included the following link to the working test case so that you don't have to hunt for it:

Seems like an issue with Firefox and addEventListener() to me, the behavior is consistently broken even if you remove jQuery:


I've linked to our ticket at the Mozilla one:


I'll close this cantfix, it really seems like something the Firefox team will need to address. Please post if there is some reasonable workaround we can use, but with Firefox on a quick update cycle it usually doesn't make sense for us to invest a lot of time on these kind of problems.
