alert call not being picked up in Treehouse Workspace

I created just a regular html page with an external JavaScript file and it worked just fine. But the exact same code inside the TreeHouse Workspace does not work. It logs console.log inputs but a basic alert function does not work

can someone help me out with this?

<script> alert('Warning'); </script>

I'm not seeing that. I've created a Workspace with a HTML and JS file. The JS file has alert('hello'); and the HTML file links to the JS file: <script src="app.js"></script>

Maybe you could show us your code.

Thanks for the response Dave. I figured out that my browser is not up to date. That is why It was not working within the workspace. I really can't download another or update my current. But I found a work-around.

Thanks again.
