I was getting this, but it was only happening on my vagrant box, on other sites it was fine.

Would be nice to have this fixed as local environments are testing sites. Kind of defeats the purpose

Very disrespectful and concerning to leave a bug like this in such an important piece of software. Fix it ASAP.

How I fixed this

Install https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/chrome-extension-source-v/jifpbeccnghkjeaalbbjmodiffmgedin

Go to https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/lastpass-free-password-ma/hdokiejnpimakedhajhdlcegeplioahd

Click the CRX icon in the top right and download the Lastpass source.

Unpack the zip file and in onloadwff.js add
Code: Select All Code
if(!t){return};

just before
Code: Select All Code
e({windowId:t.windowID,tabUrl:t.tab


Go to [url]chrome://extensions[/url] and disable Lastpass.

Now click "Load unpacked" and select the unzipped folder.

So I know I'm a bit late to this but the whining in this thread is incredible. First off yes it is a problem, yes I came here for a fix, but to say it is anything but a minor inconvenience is absurd.

To the guy who was debugging this as a problem in his code for an hour and wants to invoice: Get a new profession you massive noob. "at chrome-extension://hdokiejnpimakedhajhdlcegeplioahd/onloadwff.js:58:816060" did you try reading the error even once in that hour? It honestly took you an hour to realise it was an extension error?

To the guy who can't use the console any more because of this one error: Read the above or ClIcK PreSERve LoG. Christ on a bike.

The devs can't say it but they are definitely thinking it.

I won't be surprised if person above will fix this problem by just masking it in the code.

Well, it has been a month or more since this bug first appeared.

The whining is in my opinion very justifiable. LastPass as a product has managed to become an integral part of the browsing experience, not just for me. But also for companies I have worked for that have switched from nothing or worse to LastPass on my insistence.

Now I have egg on my face, thanks to the inability of LastPass to hotfix a (albeit temporary) null check in their extension code. Turning the extension off and on several times a day and then pulling out my phone to input the two factor auth was never funny.

After this I can never recommend LastPass to anyone ever again. And I am probably going to go elsewhere for the same service. I will certainly not give them any more premium money and will notify the people I convinced to buy LastPass to reconsider, based on this horrible support experience.

Customer loyalty should be a hard earned and well kept commodity, it pains me to see it given little weight in today's world. You might also consider switching to another service based on this incident, but given your previous comment I doubt that you will.

Please, it's not a nice experience as a developer to have this console error everywhere.
