The red exception box shown in Umbraco 7.1.4 can sometimes be very large (e.g., when it has an exception in it). However, the close button is at the top of the screen and is out of the visible page content so it cannot be closed. Please move the close button to the bottom (as the exception box is always added to the bottom anyway) so we can close it. Now we have to close the current session as a refresh still has the exception box.

Where is the red exception box that you talk about? Could you provide a screenshot please?

I don't have a screenshot myself anymore but it's this box that is shown on an error:


As you can see the close button is at the top-right, but if the box is larger than your screen size the box goes out of the screen and you cannot click the button. Please move the close button to the bottom-right so we can actually close it.
