I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If the function returns true then nothing further happens, if the function returns false then the normal JavaScript error reporting occurs.Which we can handle by  window.onerror = handleError;

It is not possible to resume.

But If we can get the ieda what you need to we can certainly try to do something.
