    Does the problem persist when you launch Atom in safe mode (e.g. atom --safe)? In that case it's likely a third-party package responsible for that kind of behaviour.

I too was having the exact same issue of Atom opening in dev tools and after executing
atom --safe as suggested by @idleberg my Atom text editor finally opened as expected. Now the issue becomes how to figure out which 3rd Party App is causing this issue.
