Build ID: 1999090708 Platform: RH Linux 6 (only, fine on Win32) To reproduce: - Launch apprunner - Load a page with a link (eg mozilla.org) - Click and hold on the link Result: Not all of the link is changed to indicate that you are clicking on it. Only a thin horizontal row of pixels is changed to red, but all of the link should be changed to red.
Looks fine for me on NT (the bug doesn't say whether this is a Linux only bug), and on Kipp's Linux box as well That's using the latest build
Reopening and clearing resolution. This is indeed a Linux-only bug; this is noted by the OS field (which reads Linux) and the "[PP] Linux" in the Summary field, which means "platform parity (that is, exclusive to one platform) Linux".
I should also point out that the original bug description reads "RH Linux 6 (only, fine on Win32)".
Actually, it's more complicated than I had originally thought. The link has to be surrounded by <B> tags. See the above URL or attached test case. I was also wrong: this is a cross-platform bug. Removing [PP] and changing platform, etc.
As I said in my message when I closed the bug it works fine on Kipp's build on Linux.
Does it work fine on Kipp's build using the attached test case or http://schist/m.html? To reproduce, click and hold on both of the links on that page. The one without the enclosing B tags works; the one with the enclosing B tags does not work. I'm using this morning's (19999090808) build. Are you using a newer build? I can also reproduce this on phillip's machine.
It also reproduces on kipp's machine using the simplified test case. Honest! :) Reopening &c.
Kipp, sounded like this was your bug
This happens in other configurations as well, eg http://schist/smoke or the Mozilla smoke tests page. There, the pattern is <a><font>foo</font></a>, and the same problem happens when you click on the link.
Fixed by my recent updates to line-layout for 4233 and 6865
With the Sept 13th build, this problem is fixed.
similar bug filed : bug 65917
I think this bug should be reopened. I tried the testcase with Mozilla 1.4 (Gecko/20030624) and current nightly (Gecko/20030718), and the first link still does not change color on click.
This is actually a DUPLICATE and never fixed. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 65917 ***
