== Description ==
 
This [[API_reference|API]] method allows script authors simple access to logging informational messages in the Error Console.
 
If you aren't seeing your messages, make sure you navigate to [[mozillazine:About:config|about:config]], and change the values of <code>javascript.options.showInConsole</code> and <code>javascript.options.strict</code> to true. This can be helpful for debugging.
