I am not able to use salesforce developer console, I have admin privilege in my org.

When I try to use the developer console using any browser I am getting below frozen screen.

I tried reopening, but nothing is working.

Developer console

  • Tried incognito also but not working.

  • How long do you wait, and have you tried looking at the browser's inspector to see what's going on?

    @PhilW There's a fix in Help, actually.

You don't need to contact support. You can fix this yourself.

This is noted in the Help topic "Developer Console menus are unresponsive'

  1. Login to Workbench and go to REST Explorer
  1. Use the following query in Workbench to get the IDEWorkspace

/services/data/v31.0/tooling/query/?q=SELECT id, name from IDEWorkspace

ID of IDEWorkspace is "1dexxxxxxxxxxxxxx".

  1. Do GET operation for the found id with following query "/services/data/v29.0/tooling/sobjects/IDEWorkspace/1de1a0000014sEWAAY"
  1. You will see the content of IDEWorkspace
  1. Do DELETE operation on found record.
  1. Re-open Developer Console.
  1. Developer Console will work fine. As we created a new workspace and the old workspace has been deleted.And the slowness will also be removed.
  • Thank you so much @sfdcfox, It worked.
