Bug 1284125 - Fix intermittent browser_inspector_delete-selected-node-02.js. r=jdescottes, a=test-only The intermittency is caused by a race condition. When delete is clicked in the context menu, markupview changes the selection and sends the removeNode request to the server. The selection change triggers the usual inspector update process in the client. At the same time, the server removes the node and queues the mutation triggered by the removal. And here lies the issue. If the inspector components finish updating BEFORE the removal mutation is received from the server, the test continues before the breadcrumbs learn about the deletion and the test fails. If the update is still pending when the mutation is received, the breadcrumbs have time to update before the test continues to make assertions about the breadcrumb contents. The fix here is to make the test to ensure that the breadcrumbs have seen the deletion before it continues. To enable that, the breadcrumbs need to tell the world that it has been updated even if the breadcrumbs were just trimmed and a non-element node was selected that does not trigger the full update process (early return in the code). As the inspector update process has been collecting cruft for years and tests make a lot of assumptions about the emitted events, it's not safe to trigger a new inspector update in this special case. Therefore, only the breadcrumbs-updated event is emitted in this special case and the test waits for that if the deleted node is still present in the breadcrumbs. MozReview-Commit-ID: AjC6k6SzLCu
