Hi Leonard,

There was a bug in Chrome Canary for a brief period that caused exceptions in Backbone.js, a library used by Disqus 2012 and many other web applications.

You can find more about the bug here:

As Anton mentions, a fix has been made and is already available in the latest version.

I'm on Google Chrome's dev channel and have just noticed that since the latest update to Google Chrome 22.0.1201.0 (Mac) that the Disqus plugin no longer works on my Wordpress blog, for example:

The commets aren't being shown at all and the Javascript console spews out the following error:
Uncaught TypeError: Object function (a,c){var b;a||(a={});c&&c.parse&&(a=this.parse(a));if(b=A(this,"defaults"))a=f.extend({},b,a);if(c&&c.collection)this.collection=c.collection;this.attributes={};this._escapedAttributes={};this.cid=f.uniqueId("c");this.changed={};this._silent={};this._pending={};this.set(a,{silent:!0});this.changed={};this._silent= {};this._pending={};this._previousAttributes=f.clone(this.attributes);this.initialize.apply(this,arguments)} has no method '_bindRoutes'
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'Lounge' of undefined

In the latest Firefox (v 13.0.1) the comments work. I'm also running the latest version of the Wordpress plugin (v2.73).

I can't tell definitely since what version the comments broke, but Chrome pushed out an update today and this one could potentially be the culprit.

If it turns out to be a Chrome bug, I'm happy to file a bug with them.

Thanks for your help,
