Regression Enter in inspector doesn't work sometimes
I have a problem with Firefox Beta 52. It doesn't happen in Firefox ESR 45. Sometimes Enter doesn't work in inspector to edit text, so I have to doubleclick on text node. It happens unpredictably, however, I noticed one specific scenario when it happens 1. Open https://www.w3schools.com/html/HTML5_video.asp 2. Inspect text "HTML5" in "HTML5 Tutorial" on the page 3. Press down arrow to select text node "Tutorial" in inspector, then Enter to edit text node Result: Nothing happens it seems Expected: Inspector should start editing the text node

I'm not sure it's really a bug, but yes the behaviour changed. What happens is that first enter focuses on the tag, second - put it in the edit mode. I think it is a little confusing because this is just a leaf text node. First enter is equivalent to a single mouse click on the text node. Second enter - the double click. Focus state is redundant here because there's nothing to tab over (unlike typical tags). But it is also reasonable to have a consistent keyboard behaviour around all inspector tree nodes.
I guess simple text nodes can be an exception.
Too late for a fix for 53, fix-optional for 54, minor carryover regression.
