DIV using absolute position causes under- or overlying clickable region to become inert
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 The example has two buttons, one of which is partially "inside" a DIV, the other wholely. The DIV is positioned via position: absolute. The portions of the buttons inside the DIV are not clickable. Futzing with z-index seems to have no effect. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Try to click the right hand "ClickMe" button. 2. Click the left side of the left button. Actual Results: 1. Zilch 2. An alert dialog appeared, announcing that "It worded." Expected Results: In both cases, I expected to see the alert dialog. This looks similar to bug#35440.
Is this a dupe of bug 178569?
I see the behavior described in today's Linux, OS/2 & W32 trunks. Would mark new except that I have no idea that this isn't WAD.
The div is above the buttons, so it catches the mouse events. z-index only applies to positioned elements, so setting it on the button in that testcase does absolutely nothing. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 102695 ***
