On this page if i click on a blue "i" icon (you can find them behind some links)
a message window pops up. when i move the mouse cursor inside this window,
mozilla changes his state to "Loading...".

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. click on a blue "i" icon
2. move mouse cursor inside the poped up window

Actual Results:  mozilla reports "Loading..."

Expected Results:  mozilla's state should not change
Confirming reported behavior with Mozilla trunk binary 20020617xx.

I found an "i" icon 75% of the way down the page, to the right
of a link called "Fraps 1.8"

<a href="/downloads/fraps.php">Fraps 1.8</a>

<a href="javascript:popupMsg('Customisable hotkeys for screen captures and 
framerate logging. \nFixed a bug and now the counter displays in more games.')">

<img alt="Info" src="" width="15"            
height="15" border="0">


where we have:

function popupMsg(msg)

After the initial load of the webpage, the status bar in Mozilla says

      "Starting Plug-in for type application/x-shockwave-flash"

When I mouseover the "i" link, it changes to 

      "javascript:popupMsg('Customisable     etc. )"

After the alert comes up, if I move my cursor over the modal alert,
the status bar in the Mozilla window changes back to 

      "Starting Plug-in for type application/x-shockwave-flash"

In IE6, the status bar changes to this on mousing over the "i" link:

      "javascript:popupMsg('Customisable     etc. )"

and remains set to this until you dismiss the alert. Mousing over the
alert while it is up does not cause any window.status change.

This is not a JS Engine issue. Reassigning to DOM Level 0 and to
danm, who will know what the proper behavior should be here -

When I move my cursor over the modal alert, the Mozilla icon in the right upper
corner of the browser changes and the Stop button is enabled, as if a page is

Eugen: Is this still a problem ?
Cannot reproduce this problem. The icons, which caused the problem, are not used for some years.
Thanks Eugen for your response after 10 years !
