(Reporter: sujay, Assigned: mcafee)



(Keywords: platform-parity)

using 7/28 build on linux build

1) launch apprunner and editor
2) using mouse, highlight some text.

The text doesn't get highlighted giving visible indication that it is
selected....this is a regression...

linux only.

akkana, can you do two things please:
1) verify that this is still a bug on linux
2) if so, set a break in nsTextEditorFocusListener::Focus(nsIDOMEvent*
aEvent)and validate that it gets called as a result of the mouse click in the
editor content area.  If it does not, please reassign this bug to either joki or
whoever is platform champion for events on linux.  If the method does get
called, but selection is not visible, please reassign to me.  Thanks.

I don't see this on my linux build from today (8/2).  I can drag the mouse in
the editor window (without doing anything else first) and the highlighting shows
up, in both html and plaintext editors.

Marking worksforme -- Sujay, would you try with today's build and if you still
see it, I'll come over and watch what you're doing.
re-opening bug..apparently its a Solaris issue...

Chris, Ramiro, who's our Sun contact for Sun-specific gfx bugs?  Apparently the
gfx XOR mode isn't working when displaying to a Solaris display, and I'm not
sure who should own this bug.

Reassigning to mcafee, cause i dont have a sun box to test.

Yes, I see this on solaris now.

Not really critical for dogfood.  Move to M13.

How hard is this gonna be to fix?
It appears that Mozilla doesn't support highlighting on 8 bit displays. I have
the same problem on some of the Linux boxes here.

Move to M16 for now ...

I think this may have been fixed becuase the Linux boxes here which were showing
this 8-bit problem can highlight fine now...

pavlov says he's mostly fixed this w/ mjudge.

A small problem remains, but he (pavlov) has a bug

assigned to him about that.

This is workingforme tonight, linux displaying to solaris 2.6/8bit.
