Google profile prevents using JS console in chrome, how to fix this?


Strange problem, if I use a guest profile on my mac or just in chrome then I can accessa console (cmd option j) but otherwise I can’t. What’s going on here? I can’t find anything that might help from preferences.

Whatever’s preventing you from using the dev tools, it’s not your Google profile. What happens when you try to open the console, and which page are you opening it from?

Any page. But if I switch from my account to guest (in chrome) then if works just fine. Also if I log out of my my mac account and log in as a guest user and then go to chrome the JS console again works just fine.

but when I use chrome so that I’m logged into my google account and try to open the console or developer tools nothing happens.

this is were I got the idea to test those guest account.

Did you try deleting this file?

~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Local Storage/chrome-devtools_devtools_0.localstorage-journal

yes I did but it didn’t have any affect
