Steamroller - Chrome crashing, can't recover

#1

I was working on Steamroller, and somehow wrote something where Chrome won’t respond, and now I can’t use Chrome for working on exercises. If I bring up the Steamroller exercise it just hangs, I can’t even clear the code. How do I get it to reset so I can use Chrome again? I did a hard refresh and cleared the cache but it is still populated with my code when I bring up the exercise in Chrome. Ack.

You have created either an infinite loop or infinite recursion.
FCC uses an infinite loop protection, but it can’t catch every case.
The reason that your browser crashes every time you try to load the challenge is because the code in your editor automatically runs. Try disabling auto run.
Another option is to clear the challenge data from your browser cache.

there is nothing from freecodecamp in my local storage (also mine is under “Application” instead of “Resources” in the help page)

not sure on the syntax for the url with run=disabled, these didn’t work:
…freecodecamp.org/challenges/steamroller?run=disabled

…freecodecamp.org/challenges/steamroller#?run=disabled

I got it cleared by clearing all browsing data, cookies etc, from the last hour. Thank you for your help!
