Scatter_plot.html + DevTools + refresh = Video/Treehouse Bug

Whilst following along with this video at about 2min mark. If I open the DevTools and refresh (with/without breakpoints) the debugger will stop at: Line 33: debugger; and then the video will freeze (sound continues) and non-responsive.

I have to close the tab and start over again, but there is no way to watch the video and run Chrome DevTools at the same time.

Will watch the video in Mozilla, but if anyone has a solution or explanation, I would love to hear it.

I had the same problem. Try running the page in a new chrome window (rather than a new tab in the same window). I believe when the Chrome debugger pauses, it pauses all tabs in the window. Opening a new window and running the page there worked for me.
