When reaching the top or bottom of the visible area, the composition window does not scroll Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Write a mail message that is larger than the visible area so that some of the text is not visible. 2. Select some visible text using the left mouse button and hold the button down. 3. Drag the text to move it to a section of the message that is not visible. Actual Results: Nothing Expected Results: Window should scroll to display off-screen text As far as I know, Mozilla/Netscape mail has always had this shortcoming.
Yossi David, is this bug still a problem for you? I am getting the expected result using 1.3 final or 1.4RC3. If this is working for you, please mark this bug Resolved|WorksForMe.
I am still experiencing this problem with 1.4RC3. When trying to drag text out of the visible composer window, the cursor changes to a circle slash and the window does not scroll. Does it matter that I have been upgrading my Mozilla using the zip files and overwriting current files with new ones, rather than uninstalling and doing clean installs?
Confirming the problem still exists; reproduced easily in 1.4RC3. (I must have misread the original report.) Confirming. Also, this seems like a bug, not a request for enhancement; upgrading severity.
