I'm using Safari Technology Preview Release 105 (Safari 13.2, WebKit 14610.1.10) on macOS 10.14.6. This bug does not occur with Safari Version 13.1 (14609.1.20.111.8) on the same system.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Launch STP
Expected results: Web Inspector opens to Console.
Actual results: Nothing happens.
I believe this issue is related to https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=209628 and https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=209639
Bizarrely, if you try option-command-c first, which fails, and then try option-command-i, the Web Inspector opens in a big empty white window the size of the screen.
Chris, is this because we haven't fired up a WebContent process yet?

Yes, but this is an old issue and this has been fixed in Safari 14 AFAIK. I am unable to reproduce on Safari 14.
Please verify that this is fixed in Safari 14 (or latest STP).
It's not fixed in Safari 14 or STP 116 released today.
Additional step to reproduce:
Preferences, General, New Windows open with Empty Page, New Tabs open with Empty Page.
I can reproduce.

Oh, I can now too. Maybe I had done something that had launched the process already when I tested earlier. I will investigate.
