 +==== Error console ====
 +The place all messages are collected while running Nightingale,​ can be accessed via the tools menu.
 +
 +Unfortunately there is no easy way to copy the error console'​s content. If you get asked to post stuff from the error console, one quick way is evaluating the following gibberish (paste into the field above the log messages, then hit evaluate):
 +<​code>​var cs=Components. classes["​@mozilla.org/​consoleservice;​1"​]. getService(Components. interfaces. nsIConsoleService);​ var l={cs:cs, s:"",​ observe:​function(aMessage){this. s+=aMessage. message; if(aMessage. message=='​[[[[[LOG:​END]]]]]'​){alert(this. s); this. cs. unregisterListener(this);​ }this. s+="​\n-------------------------------------------------------------------------------\n"​},​ show:​function(){alert(this. s); }, QueryInterface:​function(iid){if(!iid. equals(Components. interfaces. nsIConsoleListener)&&​!iid. equals(Components. interfaces. nsISupports)){throw Components. results. NS_ERROR_NO_INTERFACE;​ }return this; }}; cs. registerListener(l);​ var consoleService = Components. classes["​@mozilla.org/​consoleservice;​1"​]. getService(Components. interfaces. nsIConsoleService);​ consoleService. logStringMessage('​[[[[[LOG:​START]]]]]'​)</​code>​
 +Then do something triggering the messages you want to record, and evaluate the following after that:
 +<​code>​var consoleService = Components. classes["​@mozilla.org/​consoleservice;​1"​]. getService(Components. interfaces. nsIConsoleService);​ consoleService. logStringMessage('​[[[[[LOG:​END]]]]]'​)</​code>​
 +A (long) dialog should pop up, but in contrast to the error console you should be able to select everything with ctrl-a and then hit ctrl-c to copy it to clipbord. You can then for example [[http://​pastebin.mozilla.org|Pastebin]] it to help other users to understand and fix your issue.
