Yes, you are right. Then I think it should be like this: $D(g(f)=Dg(f)Df = \nabla g (f) Df = \begin{bmatrix} 3f_1^2 & 3f_2^2 \end{bmatrix} \begin{bmatrix} \nabla f_1 \\ \nabla f_2 \end{bmatrix} = \begin{bmatrix} 0 & 0 \end{bmatrix}$ which implies that $(Df)^T \begin{bmatrix} 3f_1^2 \\ 3f_2^2 \end{bmatrix} = 0$. Then either $f_1=f_2=0$ or $(Df)^T$ is singular.

accepted $f: \mathbb{R}^2-\{0\} \rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ is continuously differentiable and $f(\alpha x) = \alpha^2f(x)$, then $x \cdot \nabla f(x) = 2 f(x)$

@RobertLewis Yes, that is right.

@RobertLewis I cannot prove that it is a norm and I could not find a proof on the internet.
