Adding logging on Loop, we frequently want to check things are happening before a window.close() call. When doing this, however, the messages aren't displayed on the browser console - they never show up. Approximate STR would be to open a chat window, and in the page loaded have some code such as: console.log("test"); window.close(); If I put the window.close() in a setTimeout, then the log output happens.
Could this be because we use a timer to queue console.log calls?
(In reply to Panos Astithas [:past] (overloaded, please needinfo) from comment #1) > Could this be because we use a timer to queue console.log calls? Correct. Here is the code: https://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/dom/base/Console.cpp#589 What we do here is that, when the window is closed we clear the list of pending console messages. We can change the code, but I prefer to have the patch for bug 1058644 landed before.
Depends on: 1058644
