Edge Inspect Error with Chrome 30

The current version of the Adobe Edge Inspect CC extension for Chrome is incompatible with Chrome version 30. Chrome 30 introduced an API change that prevents the Edge Inspect extension from communicating with the locally installed Edge Inspect service. We are working on an update to address this issue, but in the meantime you can follow the below instructions for a temporary workaround.

Update Edge Inspect Chrome Extension

The Edge Inspect extension for Chrome is written in JavaScript. By making a simple edit to the source files, you can re-enable communication between the extension and the locally installed service.

  1. Disable the extension.
    Access the Chrome extension management page through the Settings menu or by navigating to chrome://extensions. Uncheck the Enable checkbox for the Adobe Edge Inspect CC extension (version 1.0.424.1). When disabled the extension will appear grey-out.Edge Inspect Extension
  2. Locate inspect.js file.
    Locate the install directory for the Edge Inspect extension for Chrome and edit the inpect.js file. The file can be found in the following directory based on your operating system.
    OSX:
    ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Extensions/ ijoeapleklopieoejahbpdnhkjjgddem/1.0.424.1_0/js
    WINDOWS:
    <user home>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\ ijoeapleklopieoejahbpdnhkjjgddem\1.0.424.1_0\js
  3. Edit inspect.js file
    Edit line 61 of inspect.js. Remove the "shadow" parameter from the WebSocket constructor call so it looks like this:
    this._wshandle = new WebSocket(this._protocol + "://" + this._host + ":" + this._port + "/");
  4. Enable the extension.
    Access the Chrome extension management page through the Settings menu or by navigating to chrome://extensions. Check the Enable checkbox for the Adobe Edge Inspect CC extension.

Once you make this change, Edge Inspect functionality should be immediately restored. This temporary workaround will let you continue to use Edge Inspect until the desktop application and Chrome extension can be updated. Thanks to Arnold from the Edge Inspect forums for debugging the issue and providing the original solution.

We apologize for the inconvenience and will release a new version of Edge Inspect as soon as possible.
