From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0+) Gecko/20020505 BuildID: 2002050521 I don't have a mouse wheel. Say I'm holding down the mouse button on the scrollbar. Then along comes e.g. a notice telling me a webpage has been updated and to ask me whether I want to go look at it. But if I move my mouse you see the webpage you were browsing still moving around. Another example: my GAIM buddy sends me a note, my IceWM thus focusses instantly on GAIM. When I return to MOzilla it's currently browsed webpage is moving to the rhythm of my mouse moving WITHOUT my holding down any mousebuttons. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set Page refresh for bookmark on short interval for a frequently updated webpage like a forum page. 2. keep mousebutton pressed upon scrollbar and wait until message pops up 3. release all mousebuttons and move mouse around Expected Results: Should've yielded focus
reporter (Mike666): can you reproduce this bug with a recent build of mozilla (for example, 1.1beta)? if so, please comment again with details. if not, please resolve this bug as WORKSFORME. thanks.
Sorry for the late reply, just back from holidays. On-topic: 1.1BETA still has it (it hasn't proven annoying to me at all anymore actually) I CANNOT reproduce the occasional popups to tell if a build has fixed this, but another easy way to test it is to: 1. Lclick on the scrollbar **and hold** 2. move mouse over webpage area 3. Rclick inside area to open a menu 4. release all mouse buttons 5. move mouse over webpage area--> focus still on scrollbar except when pointer moves over menu opened by Rclick. I must admit that I don't know whether I'm talking about 2 different bugs here or not. (e.g. ONE that occurs purely with user input inside Moz and ANOTHER which is triggered by ad pop-ups/error messages from other apps. Same thing happens in both cases.)
ah yes, that I can reproduce. Maybe one of our "onmouseout lost" bugs?
I also see this problem. My platform is BSD/OS 4.3, and the browser is a a build from yesterday (20020815). Using the following steps (very, very similar to the steps in comment #3): - left click on scrollbar and hold - move mouse into main browser window - right click, and release - release left mouse button Note at this point that the scroll action for the window follows the mouse pointer. Note that the pop window is still present. - right click and release Note that the scroll action for the window still follows the mouse motion.
