Weird LUA error

I keep getting this error every time I open a Professions window. When I googled, it didn't even say it was a WoW-related error but a coding error. Anyone else having this error, and knows hot to get rid of it? I'm no developer, just a mortal player

Once something goes wrong with a WoW AddOn, it can create a cascade of error messages. In your screen shot, I see you're looking at the 7th of 8 Lua errors. This message is probably a symptom of an earlier error. Next time you get this, scroll back to "page" 1/8 and share what that message is.

This error is coming from either line 204 or line 295 of the file Profit_Options.xml in the addon Tradeskill Profit.

I'm not familiar with XML nor do I understand this byte attribute. You can try to remove those byte parts and leave the rest of the fontstring line or uninstall the addon since it hasn't been updated for BfA.

I'm also under the impression that this addon has always generated this error, but until now, it wasn't a player-visible error. There's an xml log file that has cached errors quietly for years until some yahoo at Blizzard decided to throw them into player's faces as if they're real errors. They aren't. They're useless and harmless.

You just need to move the bytes section to the end of the EditBox line. Just tested it. No errors. Of course theres no guarantee it does what it says though rofl. I've never used EditBox on my addons but the theory is sound.

Here is a revised version of that xml file if you want to replace its contents and get rid of the error. Or, if there is another way to report the error to the developers let them know and they should fix it.
