I'm currently using Ubuntu 11.04 and I'm running into a really annoying issue while developing for web. I'm rather new to Ubuntu, coming from FreeBSD where I never encountered an issue like this, so I'm hoping that someone else here has and can point me in the right direction.
I do all development in vim (console). Whenever a browser (in this case, either chromium or firefox) feels that it needs to log some error or assert, it dumps it out to all active consoles. Sometimes showing up over my work, sometimes not. Forcing a full screen refresh (either through changing the console to full screen or minimizing/maximizing) gets rid of the text, but it's still annoying to have to do any time I encounter this problem.
Is there a way to disable either of these browsers from logging like this? Is there a compiler flag or is it something that I can set through browser options or command line parameters?
