Bug with my code? When I type 'list' in the search, the prompt comes up again and my browser and workspace freezes.

Not sure if there is something wrong with my code. I'm following along this video word for word. But whenever I preview my code and type in 'list' to get the list, the prompt just show up again and my workspace and treehouse tab in the browser completely freezes up. I have to restart everything just to get back to where I was and cannot find out why it is doing this.

Did you see this comment in the code: "you'll see a blank page until you type quit in the prompt window — then you'll see all the output printed to the screen"?

After entering "list", when the prompt appears again I type "quit", and all the output appears exactly as the comment says.

Good afternoon Carey Chan,

yes as Steven say and note the comment. But you can still write break; after the block of the code. It will break the loop and show up with the result.
