During playback of a test against Internet Explorer, a JavaScript dialog appears at random which causes my test to fail

When a JavaScript error is encountered within Internet Explorer a dialog is usually presented onscreen and if the test case does not handle the dialog, the test case will fail.

The image below represents such a JavaScript error dialog you may be presented with, the contents of which are specific to your environment / Application Under Test.

To prevent such a dialog from appearing again perform the steps suggested below:-

1) Open Internet Explorer (if not already opened)

2) Navigate to Tools -> Options

3) Click the Advanced tab in the Internet Options dialog box.

4) Scroll to the Browsing heading.

- Place a check mark by the item Disable Script Debugging (Internet Explorer).

- Place a check mark by the item Disable Script Debugging (Other).

- Remove the check mark by the item Display a Notification about Every Script Error.

5) Click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box. The error should no longer appear. You may also wish to provide a copy of the JavaScript error text to the developer of the application for investigation
