Meanwhile you see that "add cursor" which appears when, e. g., adding a mail item to another folder in MailNews by dragging and holding the Control key. While the usage described above may not be normal usage, I find it happening to me quite often when I play around with my mouse while reading something, lost in thought. And it sure is annoying. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Mark any text. 2. Click and hold down both mouse buttons simultaneously somewhere inside the marked text. 3. Still holding down the buttons, move the cursor over the context menu, and out of it again. Actual Results: You can't click anymore with the mouse, anywhere on the desktop. You've got to press Escape to make the cursor return to normal. Expected Results: Nothing special.
Confirming and over to events.. we seem to enter a drag session for some reason...
Any news on this bug? I'm still seeing this problem with 1.3a (Build ID 2002121222).
I think this ancient bug can be closed. Can't reproduce the behavior with Firefox 3.0.13 - I don't know whether FF 3 even contains any of the code which was responsible for the bug seven years ago.
