In the main bookmark menu (between go/tasks), you can't scroll down, as of very
recently. Scrolling up works.

You can scroll with the keyboard to get to lower bookmarks, but not with the
mouse on the arrow, by clicking or hovering.

win2k broken too 2-8-03... looks like scrolling GTK stuff causing problems?  
Keywords: nsbeta1, nsCatFood, regression

one more thing, I can only get the down scroller to go one folder before it stops.. 

also I checked bonsai, but nothing sticks in my view as a culprit, except
changes to XPCOM/glue stuff, a couple bugs that are about timers and hang/focus
problems and there are no JS console errors happening either in this build. 
took a guess at also bug 62199.

I also get this in personal toolbar menus, but I have one menu that will only
scroll down, and if you try to scroll up using cursor keys it automagically
scrolls back down to the bottom; I have also have a menu in personal toolbar the
has the inverse, you cannot scroll down and using cursor keys it forces itself
back to the top automagically.

Is Bug #121871 a dup of this?

Comment 7

I dont think so.. its build 12-26.  This problem just started, and doesn't
appear to be the same.

the problem is the pull-down menu doesn't use show (or use) the depressed
downarrow line item.. this is allowed if you get a bookmark folder open that has
many bookmarks that go beyond view to the bottom of list.  If you try this
inside a long folder you will see the correct behavior is displayed (depressed
box, and arrow down produces the correct result) 

what is broke is Up version seems removed, broken, and root bookmark folder, and
long personal toolbar folders that show this.  

There one culprit that makes me think affected this.  A bug about scrolling for
clicking one new thread at a time in folder pane, so it created a half shown
thread msg, so a use can click down on it to bring it to view to traverse a
thread pane, as this maybe related.. 

maybe GTK widgets got horked up too.

this is real usability problem blocking me from doing real bug triage and testing.. 
Severity: normal → major

OS: Linux → All
I do see this: if I hold the mouse on the last (bottom) folder in my list, or
first (top) folder, I can scroll with the arrow keys just fine thru my bookmarks..  

so Mouse events: autoscroll, or something is broken a connection or major widget
functional problem here.  need help with furthur investigation of cause of this bug.

So, you're telling me that the fact that I can't use my mouse (on mouse over, or
on mouse click) to scroll through my Bookmark list isn't a major problem?

Gee I hope Netscape don't base a release on this codebase as they will be
inviting the same sort of comments they got with v6.0.

Comment 14

16 years ago was marked nsbeta1+, which means a fix is wanted for the next Netscape
release. Check your facts before slamming others and embarrassing yourself.

I did check my facts. SEVERITY was changed from MAJOR to NORMAL, and PRIORITY
was set to P3, and it doesn't have a TARGET MILESTONE (apart from the hint in
KEYWORDS to v1.0. That all tells me that it is a low priority.
Blake, Peter,

I'd like to also suggest 0.9.9 and add it to block bug 122050 if we can squeeze
it in.
Keywords: mozilla0.9.9

Having read Bug 122050 "0.9.9 must rule" I'd suggest that having the mouse work
is critical for 0.9.9 to rule.

Any chance this is related to the nsScrollingView.cpp part of the fix for bug
45731?  I can't remember without the source in front of me if this is even used
by the scrolling menus, but it's around the same time.
Could this be a focus/event issue?

I've noticed 3 things that all worked in 2002-02-07-07 and are broken in

1)  This bug
2)  Clicking on search engine in the url bar dropdown (it no longer gets events)
    (bug 124740)
3)  Tabbing through <area> elements acts oddly (bug 124789)

#1 and #2 definitely seem related...
Taking a few guess here:

This bug 124299 (s/b for embedding) sticks out, but is for focus recursion
activation and bug 121944 (s/b for OS/2) for bookmarks popup for 1 click and not
two and bug 94242 for platform changes for windows hooks.

and bug 124024 seems to tie in timer stuff with clicking, for performance stuff.

The auto scroll works in build 20020205 which was the last version I was running 
before updating to the most recent nightly.

Comment 28

I don't know if it's relevant but I don't see the usual hover effect associated
with the up and down arrows either.

Using Win Me 4.90.300 the bookmark dropdown menu does not scroll using the
scroll arrow the the bottom. 

I also get and intermittent action with the scroll keys both up and down.
Sometimes it works and other times it justs scrolls and jumps to the top of the
list. This behavior the same for the up arrow and the down arrow.

I think this may be related to bug 125075, maybe even a dupe...

Comment 35

Dup of bug 124485?  That bug is marked as part of XP Toolkit, and putterman
suggests it affects all menus.

Comment 36

Yes, this is a dupe of bg 124485.
