If you have recently installed January 2016 updates for your SharePoint farm, you’ll find that lists using the Title (linked to item with edit menu) in their view will display the following error:

TypeError: Unable to get property ‘replace’ of undefined or null reference

This is caused by the following update:

“Security Update for Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2013 (KB3114503) farm-deployment”

The fix has been rolled out as a cumulative update:

SharePoint 2013 Server

SharePoint 2013 Foundation

However, until you can roll out your cumulative update, say you must wait until out of office hours to patch the SharePoint farm, you can use this workaround:On the problem list, go in to the List Settings.

Down at the bottom, click on the view that has the Title (linked to item with edit menu) in the view.Uncheck the Title (linked to item with edit menu) field and replace it with the Title (linked to item) field.
