Error with Web Browser Extension

I was happily writing code a few days ago when suddenly my browser started showing me this nasty error on literally every page I loaded. After looking through damn near every line of my application, I realized that it wasn't my application at all, it was something in the browser. And, in fact, it was dealing with extensions. So I shut them off, one by one, until I discovered that it was LastPass' chrome extension that was the problem!

The error is:

Error in event handler for (unknown): TypeError: Cannot read property 'windowID' of null
at chrome-extension://hdokiejnpimakedhajhdlcegeplioahd/onloadwff.js:58:816001
at Object.handleResponse (chrome-extension://hdokiejnpimakedhajhdlcegeplioahd/onloadwff.js:58:757012)
at r (chrome-extension://hdokiejnpimakedhajhdlcegeplioahd/onloadwff.js:58:783163)
at r (chrome-extension://hdokiejnpimakedhajhdlcegeplioahd/onloadwff.js:58:5475)

Please, please, please fix this, asap!

This is polluting my console logs. The bug has been introduced in v 4.16

I too am having this error. As a web developer, it is quite annoying seeing this pop up every time. Looking forward to a fix.

I have exactly the same problem. Have been developing for the last few days but started around this morning.

Exact same problem. As a JS developer this was rather unsettling.

+1 same issue.

To whom should I direct the invoice for the hour I just spent chasing down an imaginary bug in my code? /s

That will hide all logging from your service workers as well as some DOM warnings. The root cause needs to be addressed asap.
