Invalid 'instanceof' operand s.DeferredSignal?!?!?


I keep getting this stupid message, when I am following the learn instructions to the letter. It is frustrating to say the least.

Every exercise I do, it just comes back with: invalid 'instanceof' operand s.DeferredSignal...if I run the code 2/3 times, it then offers to change the code for me. However the new code looks exactly like mine.

=<!DOCTYPE html>

The img =source=
you use, gives a HTTP-error 403,
A 403 response generally indicates one of two conditions:

  • Authentication was provided, but the authenticated user is not permitted to perform the requested operation.
  • The operation is forbidden to all users. For example, requests for a directory listing return code 403 when directory listing has been disabled.

which leads to the DOT you are using in the path of your =source=

It would be of interest to know which Browser and operating system you are using.....



The web adress for the picture was wrong, I noticed that after I posted the code. However I corrected it and still am getting the error message. I didn't really fully understand your first message. I am very much simple when it comes to computers.

I am using FireFox, however I tried it on Chrome and got the same message too. It wasn't just this one piece of code. It's every exercise so far is giving me the same message.


Have you done a refresh Browser
Always refresh the browser after making corrections:
CTRL f5 ( if on Windows or Linux)
CMD r ( if on a MAC).
CTRL 0 to reset browser zoom

You have mentioned your Browsers Chrome & Firefox
which Operating System ???


I'm using Windows 10. Yes, I tried the refresh. Any idea what might be the issue?


Can you paste in a screenshot ?

Have you tried switching browsers ?
Are you working from home/work/school ?
