Javascript Hotfix for Chrome version 61

posted Sep 13, 2017, 8:48 AM by Eric Patrick
A recent update to Google Chrome resulted in intermittant javascript errors occuring when loading the standard QBO3 javascript library. An update to qbo.ApplicationWeb > Scripts > mootools.js fixes this bug.

The mootools.js file contained a byte order mark at the beginning of the file that resulted in an occasional "unexpected end of input" error message when loading the library in Chrome (version 61.0.3163.79).  Using a "hard refresh" (Ctrl-F5) 1-3 times would generally cause Chrome to load the javascript correctly, so the error was intermittant.

This error does not occur on Microsoft's Edge browser.
