What is this error? JavaScript Debugger Console: Web Console disabled . . .

I keep seeing this error in the event log

JavaScript Debugger Console: Web Console disabled, please install JavaFX or use bundled JRE.
To enable Web Console, switch the flag "js.debugger.webconsole" in Registry.

What is this error and how do I get rid of it permanently?  It appears every time I start debugging a node app.  JS debugging seems to be working fine

Web console is the debugger console with advanced highlighting/code evaluation capabilities, see https://blog.jetbrains.com/webstorm/2019/03/webstorm-2019-1//#debugger.

Most likely the JRE you run WebStorm with doesn't include javafx; can you check if the issue persists when using the bundled JDK? See https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/206544879-Selecting-the-JDK-version-the-IDE-will-run-under for instructions on switching IDE JDK
