I'm not sure if this is a new update, or a browser setting I changed when I was drunk, but basically when I open the Chrome Developer Console, Javascript becomes blocked on that page (And the Javascript Blocked icon appears in the address bar).

Even after closing the console, Javascript is still disabled, until I refresh the page.

Has anyone else had this issue?


You can disable Javascript on pages where the Developer tools panel is open.

To re-enable it go to the Developer tool settings and uncheck the Disable Javascript option on the Preferences tab.

  • There's also a "Restore defaults and reload" button. Looks like that also did the trick and may have solved other problems. – Will Shaver Nov 8 '16 at 22:14

  • The settings page of the developer tools has been redesigned, on the preferences tab in the most right column you will find the Disable Javascript option – NoNameProvided Mar 14 '17 at 23:15
