Description

2 years ago
I noticed a problem in Firefox ESR 45. It also happens in Nightly 55.
When inspecting element in browser UI, sometimes the element isn't selected in markup. Here's how to reproduce the bug:

1. Create pref dom.allow_XUL_XBL_for_file as true.
2. Open attached .html page.
3. Press Ctrl+Shift+C and inspect text "123" on the page.

Result: <pre> element is selected in breadcrumbs, and no specific element is selected in markup.
Expected: <test> element should be selected in markup and also in breadcrumbs for consistency.

This might be the same as bug 1360072. We need to investigate this a little more.
