We do have step "page has no ResourceLoader errors" assertion in the
mediawiki_selenium gem [1], you should add it after every visit page
(T59304) and perhaps after actions that dynamically load additional modules.

That sounds like there was an RL error.

Detecting arbitrary JS errors after the module loads is more challenging as
others have written.

https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T46299 has Krinkle's words of wisdom.
https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/57413/ means qunit tests should catch
these runtime failures; I don't know where we stand on running qunit on
different browsers.
