This warning appears in the log quite often. It might be benign and can probably be downgraded to INFO or DEBUG.

Torbutton WARN: no SOCKS credentials found for current document.

I can trigger this message setting app.update.log to true in about:config and opening the noscript settings.

found this also in #27828, #27221, #26579, #25946, #24654, #24263, #20195, #18138

I think WARN is indeed too much. This is related to the circuit display and in case there is no node data available this log line is emitted. I think we want to keep this captured by the default log level (NOTE), though, to spot potential issues easier. Thus, I'd just tone it down to NOTE for now. bug_28075 ( does that.
