Console Configuration File Error: XML Exception: Object reference Sharepoint

If you get the error below in your event viewer
Console Configuration File Error: XML Exception: Object reference not set to an instance of an objet

and the message Object reference not set to an instance of an object! at the area where you would expect your page editing toolbar then the reason is that the xml files in Editing Menu folder in the Master Page gallery are not in the Published state.

To fix this, just publish all the xml files in the folder Editing Menu and approve them!

Thanks for sharing this. I've just spent two hours trying to fix this issue and publishing those files worked perfectly.

God Bless you!!
It worked!
You know: Never mass-approve all files in the masterpagegallery from the browser,it will turn these files in editing menu folder to pending and you wouldnt notice it till you go the Editing Menu folder and approve them one by one.
