JavaScript (AngularJS) not debugging + inconsistent debugging behaviour


I'm an IntelliJ user but posted in WebStorm since the issue is related to JavaScript debugging.

I've attached an html file example; this works with standard AngularJS IntellIJ created stub from git master; just drop in the app folder and of course npm / bower install.

Tech details are as follows:

  • on OSX Yosemite (latest)
  • IntelliJ 14.1.3 + Chrome v latest (43), the breakpoint and source do not match up.  See attached screenshot.  In Debugger callstack, IntelliJ reports it's stopped on line 228 but there is no line 228 in file
  • IntelliJ 14.1.1 + Chrome v (40), everything works correctly
  • IntelliJ 14.1.3 + Chrome v(40), breakpoint not triggered and completely ignored.

I didn't try 14.1.2 as I don't have it downloaded and it's quite big and I'm on limited bandwidth.

If this is not a known bug, I'll be happy to file...but thought I'd post here first.

please try the most recent EAP ( - does the problem persist there? It includes some fixes related to debugging in recent Chrome versions
