Description

7 years ago
I was examining a node, looked away, and when I looked back nothing was highlighted and I lost my context -- the page had refreshed.

The Highlighter should catch automatic or programmatic refresh requests and ask the user if the refresh should be allowed. This should happen if a node is locked, possibly if the user is scanning with the highlighter.
Fixed by Toolbox patch.
