F12 developer tools console error messages

This content refers to an older version of F12 developer tools. Please visit our latest F12 tools documentation.

The F12 tools console can report error and informational messages that occur during runtime. This article describes the error messages and offers suggestions for how to fix the errors.

Introduction

F12 tools console error messages provide codes that provide information about the error, for example, SEC7111 or HTML1114. These codes and messages appear in both the Console and Script tabs in F12 tools. For JavaScript programmers, these codes are thrown from Windows Internet Explorer. ActiveX and Browser extension developers can also send these errors and messages.

The tables later in this topic are broken into sections that include the code, the message, a description, and when appropriate, suggestions to fix the problem. While the descriptions in the table provide a starting point for debugging problems, the best way to get information is to visit online developer forums or the Internet Explorer developer center.

Security errors

These errors are in the form SEC7xxx, such as SEC7113. These reflect security conditions that Windows Internet Explorer 9 enforces, such as mixed content, and Tracking Protection.

CodeMessageDescriptionSuggested fix

SEC7111

"HTTPS security is compromised by [name of resource]"

Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTPS) page also has unsecured (mixed) content.

Do not include unsecured content on a HTTPS page.

SEC7112

"Script from [URL] was blocked due to mime type mismatch"

The HTTP response header for the JavaScript file that is specified by the URL has an "X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff "header, and did not have a content type declaration.

Add the correct content type for the JavaScript file (such as text/javascript, application/javascript, and so on) See MIME-Handling Changes in Internet Explorer for more information and a full list of content types.

SEC7113

"CSS was ignored due to mime type mismatch"

An imported style sheet was not used due to the wrong MIME type in the HTTP header.

Ensure style sheet file is delivered with the proper HTTP response header, which includes a content type of text\css. See MIME-Handling Changes in Internet Explorer for more information.

SEC7114

"A download in this page was blocked by Tracking Protection.[URL provided here]"

User blocked script or content by using Tracking Protection.

None - user initiated.

SEC7115

":visited and :link styles can only differ by color. Some styles were not applied to :visited."

More than one attribute, such as font or size, were changed by using the visited and link styles.

Change only the color attribute.

 

Note  For websites in a users trusted security zone, Internet Explorer will not check the MIME type of a style sheet.

HTML codes

These codes are in the form of HTML1xxx, such as HTML1115. They can specify errors or states that the developer might or might not be able to control.

CodeMessageDescriptionSuggested fix

HTML1112

"Codepage restart from [encoding] to  [encoding]"

A codepage was specified that was different than the server.

Use same codepage as server to avoid message.

HTML1113

Document mode restart from [mode] to [mode]

The webpage requires a different document mode than the browser was currently set to.

This message can occur when the user browses from another page, so it can be out of the developer's control.

HTML1114

"Codepage [codepage] from [domain] overrides conflicting codepage [codepage] from [domain]"

Conflicting codepages specified in the http header and markup for a website.

Fix codepage conflict.

HTML1115

"X-UA-Compatible META tag ("[META tag]") ignored because document mode is already finalized"

Typically the "META" tag was placed after a "Script" or "Style" declaration, which fixed the document mode for the page.

Move the X-UA-Compatible META tag as early in the header as possible. A good practice is to put it immediately after the "<title>" and charset value.

HTML1116

"X-UA-Compatible META tag ("[META tag]") ignored because of earlier X-UA-Compatible META tag ("[META tag]")"

There are more than one "X-UA-Compatible""META" tag in the "<head>" section of the source code.

Remove all but one "X-UA-Compatible META" tag, and ensure it is as early in the header as possible. A good practice is to put it immediately after the "<title>" and charset value.

HTML1200

"[domain] is on the Internet Explorer 9 Compatibility View List ('[path to local Compatibility View List]')."

The current website is listed on Internet Explorer's internal list.

Website developers can follow guidelines to remove their site from the Compatibility View list. The list is periodically updated by Microsoft, so changes can be downloaded and reflected.

HTML1201

"[domain] is a website you've added to Compatibility View."

The user has clicked the Compatibility View button for the current website or added it through the Compatibility View settings.

User initiated.

HTML1202

"[domain] is running in Compatibility View because "Display intranet sites in Compatibility View" is checked."

The user has selected the Display intranet sites in Compatibility View check box in the Compatibility View settings.

User needs to press Alt + T, click Compatibility View settings, and then clear the Display intranet sites in Compatibility View check box.

HTML1203

"[domain] has been configured to run in Compatibility View through Group Policy."

The network administrator has specified that the webpage be run in Compatibility View.

User needs to contact the network administrator.

HTML1204

"[domain] is running in Compatibility View because "Display all websites in Compatibility View" is checked."

The user has selected the Display all websites in Compatibility View check box in the Compatibility View settings.

User needs to press Alt + T, click Compatibility View settings, and then clear theDisplay all websites in Compatibility View check box.

HTML1300

"Navigation occurred"

A new page was navigated to, or the current page was refreshed.

This is an informational message and not an error. To filter this message, right click the console pane, click Filter, and then uncheck Info.

 

HTML5 parser warnings

The following warnings can occur as part of the validation that is performed during HTML parsing. These warnings don't necessarily mean a page is broken, but that the provided HTML is invalid per the HTML5 standard. Content created according to earlier versions of the HTML or XHTML specifications might not be valid in HTML5, in particular with respect to the use of DOCTYPEs. For more information, see Creating Standards-Enabled Websites.

Common causes of these warnings include missing or additional characters, and mismatched tags. When these warnings are resolved, it can improve compatibility with older browsers and improve a webpage’s compliance with the HTML5 standard. To help identify the source of a warning, Internet Explorer includes line and character offset information along with a link pointing to the location where the problem was found.

CSS codes

These errors are in the form CSS31xx and are related to "Web Open Font Format (WOFF)", and "Embedded OpenType font (EOT)" source and host server problems.

CodeMessageDescriptionSuggested fix

CSS3111

"@font-face encountered unknown error"

An unknown problem was encountered with the "Web Open Font Format (WOFF)", and "Embedded OpenType font (EOT)" of the Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) font.

Check source of "WOFF" fonts. Try alternate font face or source to see if problem reproduces.

CSS3112

"@font-face failed WOFF integrity check"

The "Web Open Font Format (WOFF)" font is possibly corrupt, incomplete, or not the correct format.

Check source of the fonts. Try known good font face or source to see if problem reproduces.

CSS3113

"@font-face mismatch between document origin and EOT root string"

The font cannot be used because the URL(rootstring) in the "Embedded OpenType font (EOT)" does not match the domain of the document using the font.

The URL checksum in the "EOT" rootstring might be incorrect, indicating a corrupt or altered URL for the font. Ensure that the font is licensed or has permissions for the website where the fonts are being used.

CSS3114

"@font-face failed OpenType embedding permission check. Permission must be Installable."

The font-face does not have permissions to install with the current webpage.

Obtain the correct permission or licenses for embedding the font.

CSS3115

"@font-face unable to load invalid OpenType font."

The font-face is not valid for this use.

Obtain the permission or licenses for the current and valid font-face.

CSS3116

"@font-face failed cross-origin request. No Access-Control-Allow-Origin header."

The font might not be configured for cross-domain access.

The font is not served from the same origin as the document. Ensure that the host serving the font allows the use of this font by using the "Access-Control-Allow-Origin"HTTP header.

CSS3117

"@font-face failed cross-origin request. Resource access is restricted."

The "Access-Control-Allow-Origin" header might not be configured correctly or the font host might not allow this font to be used by your page.

Ensure that correct permissions and a correctly configured HTTP response header that has cross-domain access origin for the host serving the fonts.

 

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) codes

F12 tools do not currently support extensive Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) debugging, but several console messages are displayed to help debug SVG code.

CodeMessageDescriptionSuggested fix

SVG5601

"SVG Path data has incorrect format and could not be completely parsed."
