I am running a dual monitor win2k computer. Right (primary) monitor uses geforce 3 card Left (secondary) monitor uses a 3dfx voodoo 3000 card. If the mouse cursor is located on the left hand window and I do something that would cause an item to be highlighted then the highlight will only display briefly and then disappear. Some examples.. If there is a link on a web page and I point to it then the link will briefly underline and return to normal.. If I right click on a web page to get the menu and I point to an item it will highlight briefly and return to the normal state.. If I move the window such that the word that is linked spans between the monitors (such that it is partially visible on both monitors) and I point to it on the primary monitor it will highlight the whole word normally. If I move the mouse to the secondary monitor and point to it on that side it will highlight and revert to unhighlighted.. On situations when I am highlighting a link and it would display in the status bar at the bottom.. it is normal on the primary monitor and is only briefly displayed on the secondary monitor. On the secondary it displays the link and reverts to the standard.. "Document: Done (208 secs)" message..

Same problem, with firefox 0.8
Doesn't seem hardware dependent at all. I see this same bug on my notebook with a secondary display hooked up as well as a desktop with a GeForce 4 MX dual display card. Drives me crazy.
Am still experiencing this on Mozilla Firebird 0.8 and Mozilla 1.6 on both my GeForce 4 and a Radeon 9600XT dual head video cards... so it does not seem to be hardware dependent. This has been around for a long time already.
Jonathan, can you try again with Mozilla 1.7rc3 or Firefox 0.9rc1 ? This may be fixed via bug 135079.
Is this still an issue?
This was fixed long ago.
