From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0+) Gecko/20020512 BuildID: 2002051222 Clicking on the bookmarks menu steals (and freezes) the mouse, to the point where I have to switch to a virtual terminal to do a "killall mozilla-bin." There doesn't seem to be any way to get the mouse back (punching the mouse and/or keyboard definitely don't work...). It worked up until roughly last Wednesday. It sounds closest in description to bug 96504, but I'm not dragging anything, just clicking. As a workaround I suppose one could open the sidebar or top menu, since bookmarks seem to still work in there, as does the personal toolbar folder. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click on the stupid Bookmarks button (the one just to the right of the Home button. 2. Cry. Because you've clicked on the fscking thing yet once again. I'm like the dumb version of Pavlov's dog when it comes to this. Actual Results: The browser locks up. Expected Results: Displayed the bookmarks... I searched for bookmarks on recently reported, as well as in general. None of them seem to match, which is odd because of the three people sitting within earshot of my desk who use mozilla nightlies under linux all of us have been bitching and moaning about this bug (and updating nightlies daily). Aparently we're too well trained to click on that all too convenient (and all too broken) icon when we want to get at our bookmarks.
Ooooo pounding repeatedly in frustration on the ESC key seems to make it let go of the mouse. In case it helps... the drag and drop gtk icon comes up (for no good reason, since I'm not dragging anything), and the cursor turns into a something that looks like this: _ |+ I'd love to take a screenshot, but like I said it grabs the mouse and won't let go. I can't really switch windows in my WM without the mouse... alt-tab (I'm using Enlightenment) traps the mouse in the window with the drag and drop icon attached to it. -- Travis
I would like to confirm this exact behaviour on Linux build 2002051310. This is probably also a duplicate of bug 143785.
