Steps to reproduce

This error only seems to occur if the Developer Tools are in use, and I’m able to reproduce it on every site I’ve tried, including Wikipedia, Github,

To reproduce:

  1. Open developer tools - either by pressing F12 or right-click + Inspect Element
  2. Close developer tools
  3. Open developer tools again
  4. Click on an anchor on the page to navigate elsewhere
  5. In the console, the error SCRIPT5: Access is denied (on Line 1 of the current page) is recorded.

This seems to be completely benign, but quickly becomes a nuisance while debugging on pages that post client-side errors back to the server.
