Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020412 Debian/0.9.9-6 Many one-button informational dialogs that come up can not be dismissed (e.g. when a text search fails). Some two-button (Ok and Cancel) dialogs do it as well, such as when prompted to overwrite a file. I have seen this same bug on my Debian Linux system (running strictly woody/testing dist on an Athlon) in all versisince 0.9.4, up to and including 1.0.0 (don't know about before 0.9.4). I have used only the Debian packages for Mozilla; the current package contains Mozilla build 20020412. Reproducible : Always 1) Search a web page for some text not on that page. 2) A "Text Not Found" dialog with an Ok button appears and can't be dismissed. Or 1) Start a file download. 2) In the Save As dialog, choose a file that already exists. 3) A Confirm dialog box asking whether to overwrite the file appears and can't be dismissed. Actual Results: Dialog can't be dismissed. Focus can be changed to other Mozilla windows that are already open, but Mozilla does not respond to further commands. Specifically: new windows can not be opened; the top menu bar and the right-click mouse menu will not dropdown/appear; hotkey sequences such as Find, Open Web Location, Open File do not function; currently open pages can not even be scrolled, using either the scroll bar or a mouse wheel. In short Mozilla stops responding to all input. Effectively Mozilla has crashed, even though the windows remain open Mozilla must be killed and restarted Expected Results: Close the dialog box! See bug 144999 for the same problem on FreeBSD systems.
Can you try a newer build? I am not experiencing the described problems with 2002061708 (trunk build). I remember doing text searches in 1.0.0 with no problems, but cannot test a 1.0 build at the moment. Also try creating a new profile and testing with that. If you want to stick with 1.0, try a build from ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest-1.0/ (maybe latest-1.0.0) (OT: if you want to try an unpackaged nightly, just grab an installer build and tell it to install under your home directory--just be sure to create a new profile for the nightly one; best back up your profile anyway, if you have anything you want to keep in there)
Reporter: This bug is invalid ! (Sorry !) We accept only bugs from Mozilla.org build. Debian and other have their own patches in mozilla. Please report this at the debain bug database or test this with a mozilla.org build and reopn this bug.

I tested with a nightly build from latest-1.0 (20020618) and the problem does not occur. I will contact the Debian team to see if this is a bug they introduced. Thanks for your help.
thanks ! Btw: i should learn typing :-) v after reporters comment
