We do have a background page, but I'm fairly certain this is happening when
the content script is running. It really feels like the debugger has
crashed somehow.

Yeah, sorry.

Not that I've been able to tell. It *might* be related to reloading the
extension, but I honestly can't tell. So far it's been rather intermittent.
The solution is always the same though. Reload the extension manually, then
reload the page, and boom, it shows up again. It's making me crazy,
FWIW.... :)

You're probably not interested, but I'm happy to try to reproduce on a
video call or something. I'm in Berkeley, CA, so PST time zone.
