Application_Error in Global.asax not firing in production

I had an error on my site, to my surprise I did not get an email with the error.

I debugged my code and saw that the Application_Error fired.

It took a couple of hours of searching but I came across a post that mentioned if you have the precompiledApp.config file in your site folder the Application_Error handler in the Global.asax will not fire for unhandled exceptions!
