Frontend Editing with RTE not working in Iceweasel 3.5.16
|Status:||Needs Feedback||Start date:||2012-04-11|

When trying to edit content using FE editing and RTE, the Editor says: "The editor is being loaded. Please wait...". The editor does not appear.
There is the following error: console[type] is not a function
It works fine when the Firebug JS Console is activated.
I know that this is an ancient browser but nevertheless I thougt that it might affect other configurations, too.

Just tried it with Chrome, FF and Epiphany and can't reproduce the issue. By looking at the code you see that the RTE checks if console is defined and an object, so there should normally be no problem. If that is only an Iceweasel problem I'd say we can close this bug. Let's wait a bit and see whether others have that problem, too.

I did some further tests. Couldn't reproduce it on Windows with Firefox 3.5.
For some reason, there is an empty console object in our Iceweasel (also when starting in safe mode).
It works fine, when I change
if (typeof(console) !== 'undefined' && typeof(console) === 'object')
in htmlarea.js to
if (typeof(console) !== 'undefined' && typeof(console) === 'object' && typeof(console[type]) !== 'undefined' && typeof(console[type]) === 'function')
I think these checks should always be done.
