#10135: JavaScript Error In post.js When Using Internet Explorer

     Type:  defect (bug)  |      Status:  new                         
 Priority:  normal        |   Milestone:  Unassigned                  
Component:  JavaScript    |     Version:  2.8                         
 Severity:  normal        |    Keywords:  Internet Explorer JavaScript
 When using Internet Explorer (but not Firefox) I receive the dreaded error
 "Object doesn't support this property or method" I traced the error to
 line 217 of post.dev.js.  Evidently, IE doesn't like the way the autosave
 function is declared inside of the if statement.  The solution was to
 replace "autosave = function(){};" with "var autosave = function(){};"
 There were no problems in Firefox regardless of how autosave was declared.
 It was a simple change, however, I have still attached a patch with the
 above change.

 Steps to reproduce.  Access any admin page where post.js will be loaded
 and  autosave.js is not using Internet Explorer.
