Chrome DevTools broken – Stetho unusable

Stetho and Google Chrome DevTools have become unusable after a macOS update (I doubt that macOS update is the origin of this bug, but I prefer to mention it).

Here is the appearance of DevTools after the open of “inspect mode” on a device (provided by Facebook Stetho library for Android & OKHttp).

DevTools window

There are no longer “CSS” stylesheets on the page and fonts have changed. Many tab pages aren’t displayed (i.e. Network Requests), I only have access to some error messages :

There were 84 bytes that were not consumed while processing request 4
There were 84 bytes that were not consumed while processing request 5
There were 84 bytes that were not consumed while processing request 6
Failed to clear temp storage: undefined

I followed instructions on this issue : Failed to clear temp storage and this one : Failed to clear temp storage: SecurityError in Chrome but I haven’t been able to fix the problem.

Here is what I tried :

  • Uninstall and reinstall Chrome with AppCleaner
  • Remove chrome cache from disk
  • Remove chrome profiles from ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome
  • Create and use a new Chrome profile
  • Try to connect on Firefox distant debug (unfonctionnal)
  • Restart system

Have any of you ever encountered this problem ? Thanks !

You should downgrade Chrome. Problem with the latest Chrome/Chromium release https://github.com/facebook/stetho/issues/696
