According to https://wiki.mozilla.org/Platform/2010-09-07#Firefox_Development,
Implement of Inspector was dropped from Firefox 4.

So, I think this should be fixed before release of Firefox4.

Eh?  Two things:
a) The devtools inspector (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Projects/Inspector) uses a different method for its highlighter; it's not inFlasher.
b) Even if it were the case that the devtools inspector did use inFlasher, the fact that it was dropped from Firefox 4 would imply that this shouldn't be blocking, *not* that it should be...

Note that this is new breakage on a platform that inIFlasher actually worked on - windows.  This isn't really the same as bug 368608.

The effect is the same though, right?  "Rewrite DOM Inspector's flasher"?  The platform fields for that bug are already All/All.

It's not clear to me that that is the case.

This is about Extention DOMi's  blinking feature.

I think this is not bug 368608 completely.
Because, Blinking of DOMi works before enabling D3D9.
And It still works if I disabled D3D9.

Has this been fixed in nightly builds or preview releases?

I can confirm that unchecking "User hardware acceleration when available" is a workaround if blinking is not working. My video card is NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GS. I am developing a web application that heavily utilizes Canvas and SVG so I would much prefer not to have to disable hardware acceleration. Is there are less drastic workaround?

Flasher in DOMi was rewrited in Nightly 33.0a1

So, this bug is obsoleted.
