'Display a notification about every script error' not working in IE11 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I want to see script errors when script errors occur in pages (as a developer). In older versions of IE when you enable 'Display a notification about every script error' a yellow icon appeared at the bottom of IE and when you clicked it, you could see what was wrong in the scripting.

    In IE11 this no longer works. Is this a bug ?

  • "This is actually by design. The scenario you are describing is better served by the F12 developer tools, and in IE11 we disabled this dialog entirely because of the performance overhead these old dialogs incurred and the fact that the F12 tools are a better place for this information to surface."
