New issue 3387 by abhishek.mukher.g: Having a cookie with "%%" in the value causes all (most) javascript to crash

What version are you running? 2.0.1

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. go to
2. open JS console
3. type in:

    document.cookie = 'foo=%%'
4. refresh page

This seems to be because, in 3rdparty.js, the $.cookie function tries to parse every cookie, even ones that aren't requested, probably for caching. Upon doing this it deserializes every cookie and explodes the entire JS if it fails any of them.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Reviewboard diffs to show up, probably by ignoring the error for the specific cookie and logging the error.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
Chrome Version 36.0.1985.18 beta on a Mac
