@maximbaz I’d be more comfortable with removing it I think. If the warning is going to persist after use, then we shouldn’t be using that API, because it’ll alarm users (as demonstrated by the feedback you received).

I have received other feedback where this “debugger” popup appeared when a user tried to login to their online banking, and it got them really really worried.

What do you think if we remove debugger permission altogether? Then browserpass will just leave the cursor in the form and let users press Enter, just like it does in Firefox.
