I'm not sure I follow. What is the exact thing that you type in the web console, what is the resulting output and what did you expect to see instead?
Component: Developer Tools → Developer Tools: Console
Tested on: Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:30.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/30.0 Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:33.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/33.0 Steps to reproduce: 1. load any page in tab 2. show console (ctrl+shift+k) 3. type without quotation '.' 4. press tab key 5. [FAIL] "Empty string passed to getElementById()." message appears in console, pointing to resource://gre/modules/devtools/DevToolsUtils.js line 215 Expected result: '<- no result' or completion list should appear Notes: * '1' in step 3 can be substituted by any non-negative integer in standard form (it works ok for negative number, fractional numbers,hex number, expressions other then number literals) * it works ok on 'about:newtab', 'about:config', the bug appears on 'about:blank' or websites
I can reproduce that.

Ever confirmed: true
There are a number of such bugs about this warning 'empty string...'. Even putting try-catch around the code that iterates the document properties doesn't help. We should probably get rid of the warning entirely.
This appears to be fixed by Bug 1216668

If a page causes the error I'm thinking it should still show up - but to be sure can you paste the full error (with stack) and/or link to a page that causes the error?
