I have a work-around.
It's now working for that page.

Best regards,

That seems to be right. I recently got an update to Chrome on Linux Mint and started getting the same error. It didn't bother me though so I just ignored it. I'm sure the same will happen on Ubuntu.

Yes, I'm using the latest version of Chrome and Chromium on all platforms.

If you find the code for the Connector and want someone to look at it, I'll certainly give it a go.

Basically the problem is that you've upgraded Chrome to some version that the Connector does not support. Either you need to downgrade to a level where the Connector supports it or we need to update or tweak the Connector somehow. Not sure where that source code is nor whether it has been donated or is scheduled yet, will take a look.

I've started to get an error when using Chrome with the NetBeans Connector. The error is:

Browser refused to debug this tab.
Close Chrome Developer Tools (or any other browser debugger) and try again.

To replicate:

Create an HTML page and use Chrome with NetBeans Connector in the project properties. Press F6 (or run the page) and the error occurs.

I've tried this on the following NetBeans and get the same error:
  • 8.2 for Windows
  • 9.0 for Windows
  • 8.2 for Linux (Mint)
  • 9.0 for Linux (Mint)
  • 9.0 for Linux (Mint) with Chromium (clean install with default install settings)
I'm about to try it on Ubuntu 18.04 but I suspect the same error will be thrown.

I have CDT (Chrome Developer Tools) switched off as suggested and, just in case, switched on as well. There is no difference.

I'm of the opinion, though have no proof, that this could be a Chrome issue.

Can anyone else replicate it?
Does anyone know of a work-round or fix (other than not using NetBeans Connector)?

Many thanks in advance.
