I discovered that Magento - when calling the addJs php function and when using the layout.xml file - merges all the javascript tag in one single tag, producing something like

<script src="domain.com/js/scriptA.js,/js/scriptB.js,/js/scriptC.js"> etc...

How can I disable this (awful) feature?


Log in to your admin and go to System --> Configuration. Select Developer from the left sidebar and disable JavaScript merging.

  • tried it, but it still combines js calls in one tag... – sekmo Apr 29 '17 at 8:52
  • Did you clear your cache after changing that setting? – Brett Apr 29 '17 at 12:46

The solution is disabling js merging on system>configuration>developer, or (in my case) disable extensions like "fooman speedster". Banged my head for a solid afternoon.
