I have got a visualforce page which uses ajax components actionFunction and actionStatus. Whenever the actionFunction is called, I use actionStatus to show the status. The onstart works fine, but the onstop does not fire instead the following error is thrown in chrome console "Uncaught Error: NOT_SUPPORTED_ERR: DOM Exception 9".

Anyone come across this?

    Can you post the VF markup? Are you using any addition Javascript or JS Libraries, such as jQuery?

The cause of this error is rerendering apex:tab from the actionFunction, apparently salesforce does not support rerendering the tab component, the solution is to wrap your tab contents inside apex:outputPanel and rerender that instead.
