This appears to be a regression of sorts, as this behavior was NOT evident with mozilla-0.9.4. However, on most webpages out there (e.g. http://www.freebsd.org, http://www.tccomputers.com, http://java.sun.com, and many, many others) buttons on web pages must be pressed twice (or the reload button pressed after the first button press) to trigger the button's functionality. I can work around it, but it's a bummer . . .

Well, the FreeBSD port of mozilla-0.9.5 list my Build ID as: Build ID: 0000000000 More helpful might be: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD i386; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011023 -- jmc
timeless, can you reproduce?
i don't recall having this problem, reporter, do you use sloppy focus? and what window manager?
No, I don't use sloppy focus (at least, sloppy focus is not a "focus" option anywhere for Sawfish). I'm using Sawfish, and I tried all combinations of all three focus options--no dice.
mozilla-0.9.7 became available on FreeBSD today, and this version does not suffer from the button press issue.
