The problem in question is this - On certain sites (not so much reddit actually), when I click such a field, the dropdown menu will show up for a second and disappear, or not show up at all... it's only after a minute or so (or more) that it stays, like it did before.
At first I thought this was a mouse sensitivity issue and it's thinking I was double clicking, but pretty sure that is not the case since on other sites it works fine, and I never touched any mouse settings between then and when I didn't have this problem.
mozregression points to Bug 1573836 but the user doesn't have Fission enabled.
Steps to reproduce:
So this doesn't happen on all sites, only some. But here's the steps I took for each test.
- Go to www.sporcle.com (trivia quiz site).
- Type something in the search bar, hit enter, then go back to the homepage.
- Click the search bar. That should bring down a menu of search history on that site (what you just searched).
And here's where the bug is - The search history dropdown might show up for a second and disappear, or show up and disappear after a couple seconds, but basically not stay steady and keep disappearing until you click it again (if you can even get it to stay steady). That's the BAD symptom -
but if the search history dropdown stays steady no problem and doesn't flicker and dance around and keep running away, that's GOOD.
