A Browser Console pane opens with every new browser window. Please make it stop.

Posted

Every new browser window opens a Browser Console pane. And it opens ON TOP of the window so I MUST close or move it every time. I have found tips that suggest it is related to "Mouse Gesture Extensions". I have none.

I found a tip suggesting that I should install the Web Developer Toolbar which would give me an option to turn it off. It did not help.

I am going to try to uninstall and reinstall. But I suspect that will not help either.

Add to this the fact that Adobe Flash crashes all the time and I am about done with FireFox. IE is always available and maybe I will try Chrome. Still, if I can get this bug resolved I would like to continue using FireFox.
