0.9.6 Win32 - WinNT4sp6 - point to focus To reproduce: 1) install TweakUI from PowerToys (I can post some pictures of installation if they are wanted ;-) http://webusenet-ny.tucows.com/system/adnload/194340_74433.html (be warned that this is a self-extractor with no directory structure) 2) enable "focus follows mouse" in TweakUI Mouse card 3) run Mozilla 4) try using a dropdown list (ie the OS dropdown on Enter bug page) Results: -if you click it, it drops down -if after that you move your mouse into the list, it rolls up again -if you press mouse on the list, the list drops down and you can select an item by dragging to it and releasing the mouse -if you press mouse on the list, drag to scrollbar of the list and release there, you can use the list as usual after this operation Expected: normal dropdown operation Note: it seems that some special dropdowns (or dropdowns w/o scrollbar?) like Location Bar or search engine in Search sidebar work as usual
Sounds like evil focus issues....

Ever confirmed: true
actually, this works for me on win2k. We did fix this some time ago. don't know why it doesn't work in your case (although note that it will roll up if you focus another window, which you can accidentally do if the scrollbox is close to the window's border).
This is not the case. I have the list in the middle of large browser window.
Summary: In point-to-focus dropdown lists in Mozilla are hard to use → With focus-follows-mouse, dropdown lists are hard to use
Reporter: is this still a bug in new builds? I fixed all the X-Mouse problems on Windows that I could find a while back.
Unfortunately I have no longer a NT4 machine and this seems NT4 specific.
