On April 25th, 2020 we received message center notification MC210713 in our tenant indicating there was going to be a feature deprecation in SharePoint Designer impacting custom form creation.  If your organization has completely adopted the modern SharePoint experience this notification will not impact you in anyway.

This is to ensure that syntax is valid, memory is properly allocated, and the browser properly understands the function you declare so it knows what to do when the function is called.

HOWEVER, if you have a function declaration within an if block, AND said declaration occurs after you try to use it, Firefox won’t understand the function and throw an error.
