Disappearing PG inspector when clicking inner child node

Hi. I saw an odd thing… in the PG Inspector… using Firefox 60.7.0 esr… on this PG.

  1. Open Inspector
  2. Use “+” clicks… to expand GUI - UI - root - leftPanel - button (1st button on leftPanel)
  3. Click on the TEXT for outer-node button [Button] (“General” panel should open below… looks fine.)
  4. Click on the TEXT for the inner-node… button_button [TextBlock]

When I do that last inner-node click, the inspector panel disappears… possibly a z-index issue.

Do others see this? Verifications/tests… from anyone/everyone, welcome. Please include browser/platform info when making verification reports/comments.

I am suspecting a z-index/layer issue, because… it takes TWO clicks on inspector button… to re-open it. This might indicate that the first click is closing the wrongly-hidden inspector, and then the second click opens a fresh one.

Sidenote to Firefox esr-branch users: Newest Firefox ESR that I installed moments ago (60.7.0)... seems to fix the disappearing cursor issue in the forum editor. YAY!!! That was a highly-annoying issue for some of us FF pilots. (phew)

Correction: Upon watching my browser’s DOM tree… after the “disappearing inspector”… a DIV called embed-host … is losing a child.

The child exists… when inspector is open.

So, it is NOT a CSS z-index issue. The inspector “embed” is actually being removeNode’d… with earlier-mentioned click-on-inner-child.

This is a sad bug :slight_smile:
Will fix that immediatly

Yeah, this issue touches the inner child in ALL of us. :slight_smile: errr.

:slight_smile: Not so sad… if you can find the lost child. The child is wearing an ID labeled “embed” (weird name for a child). Last seen in a playground, sitting on a DOM tree branch.

I think the child is only lost, and hasn’t been abducted. :smiley:
Thx 4 fix, Dk!

Sidenote: Darn, my Firefox cursor disappeared in the editor, for a moment, again. I needed to focus a different "panel" (such as preview panel), and then focus editor, again. Still, it's lots better than it WAS.
