The devtools window closes when I press enter in the URL bar to start a page load
Current m-c. Persistent logging is on, the web dev window closes when either it's open inline or a separate window. This actually ruins the web dev window purpose.
STR (clean profile + Enable persistent logs): - new window - open webdev (F12) - enter an address to the URL bar - press enter - webdev tools show ok - new tab in the same window - close the first tab => webdev tools close automatically (something also pretty unexpected for me when open as a new window!) - switch to the new tab - paste the same address as before to the URL bar - press F12 => webdev tools open again as a new window - Alt-Tab to the browser window (and Alf-D if needed to focus the address bar) - press enter => webdev tools window is gone!
Example URL: http://gizmodo.uol.com.br/
I can't reproduce this. The detached toolbox closes when you close the tab because it's specific to that tab and can't be repurposed. But when I switch between windows and reload existing tabs everything works fine. Do you see any errors in the Browser Console (Ctrl-Shift-J) when the toolbox closes unexpectedly?
The STR is very precise. Are you on the current Nightly?
I am on the latest Nightly, but I don't see the devtools window disappearing in the last step. Would it be possible to post a screencast where you reproduce the problem, to see if I am doing something wrong?
Panos, forget STR from comment 1. Here are new ones: - current Nightly - fresh profile, NO PREFERENCE CHANGES - open a new tab, close all the welcome tabs - type (paste) http://gizmodo.uol.com.br/ to the address bar - press F12 (embedded devtools open) - focus the address bar - press enter => devtools window closes Expected: it stays open.
Thanks, I can see it now with the new STR. It appears to be e10s-related, but I haven't figured out anything more.
Ah, turns out this is already known.
