I think all dialogs are suddenly displaying this problem. But since I have an example that displays it for the preference panel, I'm assigning it agains pref-UI. But it's probably more general than that. Here's the example. Open the edit/preference window. Go to advanced pane. Check the "warn-me-before-accepting-cookies box. No checkmark appears. Keep clicking on it for a long time and finally the checkmark appears. (Maybe the repeated clicks had nothing to do with this and it would have appeared after the long delay all by itself.) Then hit the OK button. Nothing happens. Keep hitting the OK button many many times and after a very long time the dialog finally dismisses. I looked at the generated prefs.js file and at least the right thing got put into that file.
When I saw this occur, it seemed to be that only a certain place on the "OK" button would take the mouse clicks

Perhaps this should read 'must double-click when clicking in dialogs', since that seems to be the problem.
Sometimes that's the problem. But at other times even double-clicking doesn't help. I haven't yet been able to determine when double-clicking helps and when it doesn't. It seems to me that double-clicking wasn't working in the preferences when I first noticed this but that it is now (and I haven't changed any code in my tree).
Setting to M10 since found on this branch and we need to know what's goind on here. At least for Release Notes if we do have a defined workaround.
Adding davidm and danm to cc list since this is obviously more general than just preference panels and may actually be in one of their areas.
wondering if danm fix for bug 15596 to the m10 branch will help this? should appear in the next respin for retest

Oh yeah: same problem as 15596. I don't currently have an M10 build, but when I tested my fix for 15596 on the M10 branch, symptoms described in this bug, which were there before the fix, went away. Calling it a duplicate. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 15596 ***
Bulk move of all Pref UI component bugs to new Preferences component. Pref UI component will be deleted.
Component: Pref UI → Preferences
