The gap in browser styles checkbox misses pointer events
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; Win64; x64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0 Build ID: 20161020030211 Steps to reproduce: In Firefox 52, open the Inspector Tool. Select the Computed tab. Position the pointer between the box and the label 'browser styles' checkbox. Actual results: The box is not highlighted and mouse 'clicks' have no effect. Expected results: The box should be highlighted and the mouse 'click' should toggle the presence of a check mark in the box.
This is because the 'input[id=browser-style-checkbox]' precedes 'label[id=browser-style-checkbox-label]' (it was inside). The gap between these is a margin and the pointer events are received by the container 'div[id=#computedview-toolbar]'. This problem can be fixed swapping the values of 'margin-inline-end' of 'input[id=browser-style-checkbox]' and 'padding-inline-start' of 'label[id=browser-style-checkbox-label]', which are '5px' and '0' respectively.

This is a regression. It used to work before when the checkbox was a child of the label element. Now the checkbox and the label are siblings. I think this was changed in bug 1294186.

Julian, do you mind checking if this is a simple enough bug for being goof-first and mentored? If yes, please give a pointer to the file that needs changing so someone can start working on it.

Sure, looks like a good first bug! I think the easiest way to go here is to update the CSS for the input and label in order to make the gap clickable. Right now we have a 5px margin at the right of the input, defined in devtools/client/themes/computed.css (see ). We should set the margin-inline-end to 0 and compensate with a 5px padding on the left of the label (#browser-style-checkbox-label). This should work in both left-to-right and right-to-left directions, so we should use logical padding properties here (see ). On a sidenote, the label currently has a `margin-right` property defined. It would be nice to replace this by the logical property equivalent: `margin-inline-end`. I don't think it's worth adding a test here, because it would have to simulate a click on a very specific position and would be both fragile and too tied to the implementation.  http://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/f5c9e9a249637c9abd88754c8963ecb3838475cb/devtools/client/themes/computed.css#39  https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/padding-inline-start
Hope the patch helps :)

Works well in both LTR and RTL directions.
