Description

16 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312

When you have more than 2 instances of Mozilla, pressing the mouse button down
on another instance in the taskbar will sometimes do nothing, and will sometimes
show the window behind the window you started on. Also, the windows in the
taskbar show inconsistent selection indicators (darker, showing the current
window) when doing this.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open three instances of Mozilla
2. Give the first one focus
3. Click on the third one in the taskbar
4. Mousedown the second one in the taskbar

Actual Results:  
The first instance is shown on mousedown of the second one.

Expected Results:  
Either continue showing the third one or show the second one.

Funny.
Open browser, mail and chatzilla.
Play around with mousedown on taskbar icons. About half of the time on mousedown
there will be a different window brought to top than is finally on top (on mouseup).

Fixing this might speed up switching between windows a bit.

This works fine now with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5. Mousing down on the taskbar now does nothing. Does it work now in other apps?
