Yes, you can. As a general rule, when dealing with frontend questions don't forget to specify your version and platform –  belisarius Jun 14 '12 at 13:32
You can turn it on/off with the menu entry Evaluation > Debugger –  Heike Jun 14 '12 at 13:34

Easier to mistype than to misprintscreen –  Rojo Jun 14 '12 at 15:22

(Or uncheck Debugger to turn off the entire apparatus.)
