After install of 1.0RC1, mouse icon changes to the pointing hand on sidebar mouseover, however, mouseclicks on items in the sidebar do not register. Mouseclicks work everywhere else. Rebooted system and retried with same result. Uninstalled 1.0RC1 and reverted back to 0.99 and everything works again. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. install 1.0RC1 over 0.99 (build id: 2002031104) 2. try to click on sidebar items such as bookmarks 3. Actual Results: same result - mouseclicks on sidebar ignored. Expected Results: recognized the mouseclicks
Did you uninstall 0.9.9 before installing 1.0rc1?
I did not uninstall 0.9.9 first.
Hmm. For several releases, the first line in the "Installation Notes" read: "Install into a new empty directory. Installing on top of previously installed builds may cause problems." The term "may" is perhaps not precise enough - it's almost guaranteed to cause problems. Reporter: Can you try a clean install? (Make sure you unpack to an empty directory, if you use that method of installing. Or run the uninstaller and make sure there are no other folders than "plugins" left in the Mozilla installation dir.)
RTFM? I missed that part... Uninstalling 0.9.9 and then installing 1.0RC1 did solve the problem. I am honestly surprised that this was the issue. I have been installing one version over the other from somewhere around 0.7.9 without problem. Perhaps I have been lucky... Thanks for your input R.K.Aa.
