The pull-down menu on www.whitver.net (pardon the poor web design :) ) does not function when running Chimera 0.5 on OS X 10.2. I have also verified that this does not work on other pull-down menus generated with GoLive (Try the "Go Quickly To..." menu on http://www.gac.edu/).
As an added detail, I should note that it looks like the mouse-up event isn't being fully registered if the user picks anything but the top choice in the menu. If the user chooses the top choice, the menu works as expected, and if you go back to the page, it works normally. If, for the first time, you choose any other option but the first, then the menu collapses back when you mouse-up (or click the option, if you single-clicked to expand the pull-down menu), but goes back to displaying the status text. If you mouse over the pull-down menu, the right-hand arrow-tab thingy darkens, as though it were in a state of half-activation.
Could you tell me the sequence of events that you tried? Which menu item did you select initially? Was this after a fresh launch of Chimera, or had you used other pull-down menus before going to the website(s) mentioned? (Also, the O.S. factor could be important; could someone with 10.2 give it a go?)
Dup of bug 160707?
WFM 2002102204 Mac OS X 10.2.1 Josh, what version of Chimera are you using?
Not that version; I'll download the latest nightly and give it a shot. If that doesn't work, would it be helpful for me to make a movie and host it somewhere so you could see exactly what it's doing for me? I could fire up Snapz Pro and take care of that pretty easily if upgrading to the newest nightly doesn't fix it.
I downloaded the 11/01/02 nightly, and it still did the same thing it's always done. I'm on 10.2.1, and the behavior exists on both a beige G3 and a gigabit G4/400. I've posted a movie of what happens at: http://www.whitver.net/~josh/chimera-pulldown-bug.mov As you'll see, the menu simply returns without doing anything. Then, I move the cursor over the menu, and the widget at the right darkens, as though it's somehow stuck in a half-activated state. The cursor sometimes disappears from the movie, but whenever the up-down-arrow part of the menu is darkened, the cursor is hovering over the pull-down. It's not until I choose the first option in the menu that the menu functions (the next time I use the menu after choosing the first option, it finally takes me to the page indicated by the menu).
Has anyone looked at the movie I created which shows the buggy behavior? As a reminder, it's at: http://www.whitver.net/~josh/chimera-pulldown-bug.mov
