What does this mean


After some intervals of a message comes on my terminal like this ,


Code:
!!! [SmartNamer] updateEntry(): TypeError: /^https?:\/\/([^\/]+)/.exec(pageUrl) is null

What does this mean ?

I would presume that you have started an application from your terminal. Applications sometimes write warnings to the terminal in which they were initialized.

Exactly what application that might be I think you have a better idea of than me, and exactly what this particular warning message might, only the application developer will know (although it might be possible to guess).

Also, if it annoys you, you can direct output to a file like this ("application" should be switch to the app you want to launch, e.g. firefox):

Code:
application > output 2> error
which will direct error output to a file name error and "normal" output to a file named output (you can switch these names however you want, it will overwrite the current file with that name, if any, however).

It seems that the browser is running some regexp operation on one of the URL's and the results are not what the application did expect - in your case it seems that an empty string was passed as an URL. To find the real cause you will have to build Firefox from source and run it in a debugger - I guess that's too much work with little to gain. Or simply ask the question on the Firefox developers mailing list - I'm sure someone will be able to figure it out.
