From the video I'm assuming that "icon sticks on screen" means that the icon remains in the enlarged state that it takes on while you're dragging it around. I tried to reproduce this locally and could not. I'll try a bit more but it would be good to have better STR.
Flags: needinfo?(bugmail.mozilla)
Ok, I can sort of repro just by long-pressing an icon and letting go while in edit mode. It doesn't work every time but often enough to debug.
Assignee: nobody → bugmail.mozilla
Ok, specific STR are:
- enter edit mode on the home screen
- do a fling
- while the screen is flinging, put your finger down into a long-press
if you hit an icon (quite likely) then the icon will grow in size to indicate it is draggable, but further touchmoves/touchend events do not get delivered to gaia.

The reason this is happening is that the while in the fling, the APZC is "in fast motion". The touchstart that begins the long-press therefore does not get sent to content, but is eaten in the APZC. However the GEL still detects a long-press and dispatches that to content. This results in the creation of a new input block (via InjectNewTouchBlock) which is intended to deal with the prevent-defaulted-ness of the longpress. Moving or lifting your finger at this point will put the touch events into this new input block and will also attempt to deliver them to content. However since the gecko nsPresShell touch-tracking code never got the touch-start that began this touch session, it drops all of these events. Therefore the content effectively only gets a long-press and nothing else.

I think the bug here is that the long-press is generated at all. If you put your finger down during a fast-motion it should just stop the fling and not actually trigger a long press.

There also appears to be a separate bug where sometimes the code thinks the APZC is "in fast motion" when visually it's not moving. This is much more intermittent.
