Error description

  • Using Firefox 68, when running a report in the interactive
    viewer, editing a report, or creating a new report, a pop up
    window is thrown with a javascript error.  The exact function
    names shown vary by version but look similar to:
    
    _05L._HUE@http://servername:9300/bi/pat/halcchl_block.js:1:58619
    _368.prototype._L5L@http://servername:9300/bi/pat/rsstartupblock
    _8.js:21:3986
    
    This does not occur for the classic viewer, nor does it occur in
    Firefox ESR 60, or Firefox 67.
    

Local fix

  • It should be noted that as of the time this APAR is logged
    Cognos Analytics versions 11.0.13, 11.1.1, and 11.1.2 only state
    active support for Firefox ESR 60.  This APAR is raised to
    capture this issue so the product can be made compatible with
    the newer ESR release, but this use case is not currently
    supported.  In the short term the issue can be avoided by using
    the supported Firefox 60 ESR browser, or another supported
    browser like Internet Explorer or Chrome.
