Uncaught ReferenceError: Ext is not defined , Uncaught ReferenceError: chatter is not defined

I have used Chatter Feed component on my visualforce page . Example : The problem is that sometimes the chatter feed is loading and working completly fine while sometimes it shows the below JS error :

Uncaught ReferenceError: Ext is not defined
Uncaught ReferenceError: chatter is not defined

and therefore feed is loding but nothing in the feed is working properly like comment / Like / File etc.

I dont understand why it is happening sometimes and not everytime ... and how to get it resolved so that the problem never occurs.

Hey @Sonam , Please find the code here :

Extension :

    global with sharing class Market_View {

    Public String businessGroupId {get;set;}
    Public String businessUnitId {get;set;}
    Public Id temp {get;set;}
    Public void SetCurrentIdValue(){
        String CurrentId ;
        if(businessGroupId != Null ){
            If(businessUnitId !=Null){
                CurrentId = businessUnitId ;
                CurrentId = businessGroupId ; 
            CurrentId = '';
        system.debug('>>>>>>>>'+ CurrentId  );
        system.debug('>>>>>>>>' + businessUnitId + '>>>>>>>>' + businessGroupId );        
        if(CurrentId != '')
            temp = (Id)CurrentId;
            temp = Null;

    public Market_View(ApexPages.StandardController stdController) {
        temp  = Null;
    public List<SelectOption> getBusinessGroupList() {
        List<SelectOption> businessGroupList= new List<SelectOption>();
        businessGroupList.add(new SelectOption('', '--None--'));        
        List<Segmentation__c> lstSegmentation = [select id ,Name from Segmentation__c where Segmetation_Type_NG__c = 'Business Group']
        for (Segmentation__c s: lstSegmentation ) {
            businessGroupList.add(new SelectOption(s.Id, s.Name));
        return businessGroupList;
    public List<SelectOption> getBusinessUnitList() {
        List<SelectOption> businessUnitList= new List<SelectOption>();
        businessUnitList.add(new SelectOption('', '--None--'));
        if(businessGroupId != ''){
            List<Segmentation__c> lstSegmentation = [select id ,Name from Segmentation__c 
                                                     where Segmetation_Type_NG__c = 'Business Unit'
                                                     AND Parent__c = :businessGroupId ];
            for (Segmentation__c s: lstSegmentation ) {
                businessUnitList.add(new SelectOption(s.Id, s.Name));
        return businessUnitList;

The solution for this is not to use ReRender for reRendering the chatter feed component .Looks like by doing Ajax call some of the bindings that are needed for chatter component is lost .

If reRender is need from User perspective ,either use Oncomplete and restore all the bindings or every time reload the page .You will need to use inspect element and figure all the functions thats missing and use oncomplete and reload these functions .
