Where do error messages go to die after being displayed?

Things I have tried

Often I get an error message that is too long to read or which disappears before I even notice it.
How can I go recover and leisurely inspect the text of such messages without them vaporizing in front me? Confusingly, they don’t seem show up in the console. Is there a log file somewhere?


What I’m trying to do

Trying to troubleshoot errors.


Not far…they’re in the developer tools.

Thanks, I did look in the developer tools, expecting to see them there but not all messages show up there. An example is with the BRAT plugin, which you can see is issuing the message “Checking for plugin updates COMPLETED” but this message does not appear in the developer tools console even though I have all levels of verbosity enabled. Is there another spot where this message might be recorded?
