Running a for on a list in JS is asking for trouble. One of the list 
elements is .length, so it won't do what you want it to in at least one 
of the cases. Maybe Chrome is blocking it on purpose.
Instead, use for (var y=0; y<x.length; y++)
Or you can reverse the loop if you need to optimize it for (var  
y=x.length; y>=0; y--)
