Description

17 years ago
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 . . .

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.
