Web console directed to debugger for some resason

Post by cartel » 2019-11-25, 06:34

I was trying to open the web console but it goes to debugger and the whole page "stops" and I can click nothing, like an overlay is there blocking me.
Can anyone tell me how to stop this?
Did I enable something to make this happen?

Well I didnt want to rat the site out..but I guess I have to?

It actually locks all pages, you'll NEED ADBLOCK!!

Code: Select all

now open the web console.
It freezes every window and goes to debug tab automatically.
If the video is playing and you open the console, it stops playing and goes to debug.
Never seen this behavior before.

Doesn't devtools just remember what you had open last? Just select Console in the tools and next time you open it with F12 you should have the console in front of you.
Alternatively, use the shortcut for console directly (Ctrl+Shift+K)

Heres a video of it. I have the webconsole open, refresh the forum here, go to the link in question, click a episode, boom it goes to debug by itself, locks the page

you'll NEED ADBLOCK!!
Translation: The site has malicious third-party requests.
Sans blocking: "An intrusion attempt by pushname.com [206.54.165.242] was blocked..."

In an event...
With that page open (and third-party requests blocked) the web console functioned normally here. Ctrl+Shift+K opened to the console, no freezing, 'stopping," no difficulty clicking, or going to the debugger. However I didn't click an episode/play the video because that requires being logged in to an account, which I don't have.

Theres noting to log into.
I tried again, I use the mycloud links and when I opened webconsole it froze PM completely, I waited several minutes and gave up.
Is there a reason this debug is taking place?
The console opens the console tab, not the last used tab and I never used debug before, I dont know how.

thanks

It's the site's defense mechanism to prevent people from examining the page. It's clearly using some quirk of the Firefox devtools to do this -- if you close the devtools, it will resume the page's normal operation. So no, this is not a bug, per se, it's just the page hacking its way around how devtools hook into pages, and abusing it to prevent people from examining the page's structure.

Off-topic:
Just to respond ...
After clicking the player a second viewing page opened whose player contained a message that an account was required. (The message had a link to a putlockertv "registration page" that in turn redirected to somewhere else that uBO blocked entirely.)
