Webstorm debbuger automatically disconnects

Thank you for reading this discussion and my problem.

I'm trying to start a local debugger session and I have the jetbrains extension installed, but after 2 seconds of running the debugger on a html page with Javascript imbedded it automatically disconnects without me doing anything. Is there a way I can fix this so I can use the debugger?

my log output in ~/Library/webstorm/idea.log

The problem is caused by Chrome update. Chrome API changes in versions 37+ have made it incompatible with WebStorm debugger. https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/WEB-12418 is fixed in WebStorm 9 EAP (http://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/WI/WebStorm+9+EAP).

if using the EAP is not an option for you, try downgrading Chrome to version 36.*
