Description mobilab 2015-11-04 08:32:22 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 8.1 RC2 (Build 201510122201)
Operating System = Mac OS X version 10.11.1 running on x86_64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.8.0
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.0-b70

Reproducibility: Happens every time

* Set a new simple html / javascript project with one html file 
* Put few div elements in the html body 
* Run File (using F6) in internal Web Browser or in Chrome (via Netbeans Connector) * Set 'Inspect' ON (Ctrl+Shift+S)

Most of the time it is not possible to inspect in the browsers. Sometimes (seems after fresh start of the IDE) seems like it is possible to inspect web app in internal web browser - but only over max 3 sec. The the Inspect functionality stop working (visually look like frozen). After reload web app in internal browser frozen visual elements disappearing. However it is impossible to inspect from now on.
The worse is that 'Inspect' is not working any longer in Google Chrome (how it was with 8.0.2).
It seem the situation is a bit better on Ubuntu.

'Inspect' functionality (reg. web apps development) is always operating and it is faster, does not hang

I can add that this issue is still appearing in stable 8.1 version - downloaded and installed on Mac OS X El Capitan today morning.

I have tested stable 8.1 on Ubuntu yesterday and can confirm that "Inspect" functionality is working there OK (might be faster ;-)).

However it still does not work at all in my installation of Mac OS X 10.11.1 (latest one).
