When loading a page with the Developer Tools open, regardless of tab, the inspector highlighter that shows the dashed lines and padding of a node in the document, will momentarily flash on the page then disappear. Typically, it's the body node, as loading a new page means nothing was really selected. It's reproducible on OSX Mavericks and Win7. I haven't tested others.
In addition, if a document has been scrolled and you refresh, the flash will scroll the document back to the top. It's very disruptive if working on a section outside the visible viewport and refreshing regularly.
Confirmed in nightly 31.0a1 (2014-03-20), win 7 x64. Last good nightly: 2014-03-14 First bad nightly: 2014-03-15 Pushlog: https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?startdate=2014-03-14&enddate=2014-03-15
Scrolling to an area in the document on refresh does not seem to occur on Windows (7). Unfortunately, I'm working on a Mac all day, and this bug is driving me loco.
It doesn't scroll on OSX anymore! Quality of life +500. An update over the last few days must have indirectly resolved or inhibited that behaviour. The only problem that remains is the flash on screen of the highlighted node on page refresh.
Just to note, this was happening on Friday, so the update rolled out over the weekend, or this morning, Tuesday.
Update: I've noticed this no longer happens. The fix probably slipped in over the last week or two, though my assumption is that it was resolved indirectly while addressing other areas of the tools, which is appropriate, as the problem was likely introduced in the same way. Also, no one was actually assigned to this task, but it's fixed. I suppose it's probably fine to close, but based on its history, I'd keep it in in case it creeps back.
It still does it. Load web tools. Refresh page. Nothing flashes. Go to Inspector page. Refresh page. BODY tag flashes with dotted border and highlighted rectangle covers entire client area. Close web tools. Open them up again. Problem is gone until Inspector page activated again. Its very annoying.
What version are you running? I'm unable to reproduce it. I'm on Nightly 35.0a1 (2014-10-02).
Dane McMillan, version 32.0.3
For now, let's close this, but please do reopen if it comes back in Nightly.
