Highlighter does not work
47 bytes, text/x-phabricator-request
|Details | Review|
**Steps to reproduce** 1. Go to `data:text/html,<meta charset=utf8>` 2. Open the console (directly, it's important) 3. Evaluate `document.body` 4. In the output, hover the `<body>` element **Expected results** The body is highlighted in the content page **Actual results** The highlighter does not work --- Note that it works if at some point you open the inspector.
Oh this is bad. I would probably prioritize this higher than a P3. This is a major feature of the console that just doesn't work anymore. I'm currently running a mozregression to find out what caused this regression. It'd be great to fix it with 65.

Somehow I think `toolbox.initInspector()` isn't called anymore before trying to highlight from the console. I think it used to be, and that's what is making this break now, because without it, the code realizes that the highlighter isn't ready, and bails out.
Thanks for investigating Patrick
Priority: P3 → P2
Yulia, would you know what's happening now?
Also, https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/3fdc51e66c9487b39220ad58dcee275fca070ccd/devtools/client/webconsole/test/mochitest/browser_webconsole_nodes_highlight.js should probably be re-written to not open the inspector (which would have caught this bug)
Yes, i think i know what is happening. I will take a look.
