When using Google Toolbar on Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 I am deluged with script errors on script-heavy sites. This started happening a couple of months ago (roughly) and has persisted since.
I've noticed a number of people posting about this problem in Microsoft's forums. If you do a search on ' "script errors" IE11 ' and set the date range to October 15th to the present, you'll see quite a few of them. Sadly, I haven't seen any solutions other than getting rid of the toolbar. That wasn't acceptable to me since the toolbar is an integral part of my workflow. I ended up writing a small program that looks for the script error messages and then helpfully closes them without user interaction. It's a horrible "solution" but I figured that either Google or Microsoft would have fixed the problem by now.
Has anyone found a better solution to the problem?
PS More information....
Stuff I've tried:
Confirmed that script debugging is disabled and that script error notifications are suppressed in IE's Advanced Settings.
Clean install of Windows 10 w/Google Toolbar
None of these things eliminated the problem. The only thing that works is to disable (or uninstall) the toolbar, close all instances of IE, and then launch a fresh copy sans toolbar.
Repro steps (assumes you've installed Google Toolbar for IE):
1) Either reboot or close all instances of IE (including orphaned ones visible via the detailed view in the Windows task manager).
2) Go to a site with a lot of scripting -- I test with huffingtonpost.com
3) Get lots of script errors message windows
Interestingly, if I dismiss all of the error windows and then duplicate the tab (right-click current tab ->duplicate tab) the new tab will operate without errors (at least initially). Odd.
Windows 10 w/all updates (anecdotal evidence suggest it happens with IE11 on Windows 8.1 but I haven't personally tested)
