I’ve been an avid Jabref user for a long time, but the latest updates have made it basically non-functional for me. Doing almost anything results in an error to the effect of “Uncaught exception occured… TypeError: undefined is not a function”. This includes searching, clicking on an entry, attaching a file to an entry, and typing in an entry (which is the most annoying since it throws 2-5 of those errors every time I type a letter…).
Right now, I’m using Jabref 5.0-dev installed via the snap store with Java 1.8.0_222 in Ubuntu 18.04 (I’m getting similar problems on my computers that have 19.04 installed).
I have to guess this is a java version issue but I can’t seem to determine from the forums what the fix might be. What should I be looking for to debug this problem? Since older versions of jabref seem to have lost their import via doi functionality, I really need to get jabref 5 working.
