Error Console window is stubborn

Post by CamelD » Sun Jun 07, 2009 4:54 am

Steps:

1) open the Error Console
2) minimize the Error Console as well as the browser window
3) in the Windows taskbar, click on the tab for the Error Console

Result:

The browser window is restored instead of just the Error Console, necessitating a second click to bring up the Error Console. This behavior is undesirable (too many extra clicks), and does not happen in Firefox.

When following your steps, the Error Console and the main browser window do both restore, with the main window on top, so yes I can confirm because if the main browser was full screen then you would not see the console window and assume it still minimised.

Also I notice that the main browser window gains an additional grey bar right at the bottom under the status bar - similar to an old Avant bug. Minimising then restoring the main windows fixes it. Only reproducible with tabs set on bottom. Anyone confirm?

Not sure what to look for. Could you post a screenshot?

As with the old Avant bug, there should be enough tabs open to cover the screen width.

Screenshots - note the additional grey bar at the bottom of the image:

Confirmed! The Error Console should pop up on top.

It also occurs when ALT+TABbing. I.e., switching to the Error Console process brings up the main browser window.
