How to Check For a Bug?
This is how you can check for a bug in your browser:
- Test your code across multiple browsers, if this issue is same across all of them then most probably there is some issue with your code and not with the browser this is because it is quite difficult to think that all of the browsers might have a bug at the same time.
- You might find the bug if you feel that your browser is not behaving in the way you want . it might be showing function other than that you desire and perform
- You can also take help from developer tool. You can check the issue with such tools
- Check the server settings.
- Check the code by using breakpoints.
- Insert breakpoints at every step and then go step by step to figure out the real problem.
- There are many browser-based debugging tools, you can find the problem through them and solve them easily.
How to Fix the Bug?
- One of the possible methods of removing the bug from the browser is to restore the browser to its default settings.
- Check the extensions of the browser to remove bug
- Update your software regularly
- Never ever install the software that you don’t trust or that software that seems to be of his sort
- Install any good anti-virus in your system and make a habit of doing a complete scan of your device regularly.
If any of the above solutions don’t work then I suggest you uninstall your browser and then install it again.
It so happens that when you start from scratch then many of your issues get resolved.
Thus such bugs can be very much harmful to your and might not allow you to use your browser.
