A project set up to show the behavior

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:

When an error is thrown in a web application the Application_Error method in
the global.asax should be called to allow for some error handling. This method
doesn't seem to be called when debugging or when a website is deployed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new web application
2. In the Global.asax.cs in the Application_Error method put the code
3. In Default.aspx.cs in the buttonClicked method put throw new Exception();
4. Deploy or debug the application and go to the site.
5. Click the button
Actual Results:  
It shows the standard .Net error page

Expected Results:  
Get redirected to http://www.google.com

This is a great method for notifying developers of unexpected errors.
