User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030509 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030509 When you receive a message with a long subject line that cannot be displayed fully in the message list, hovering your mouse over the message will pop up a tooltip with the full subject line. It is positioned exactly under the mouse pointer, and interferes with the mouse click. In order to click or double-click on the message, you need to wait for the tooltip to disappear or move the mouse away and back again. This is aggravated by the fact that the tooltips pop up much too quickly (for my taste), and I often position the mouse over the subject line that I am reading as I decide whether I want to click or not. In the browser, the tooltips are offset so that they appear below the bottom of the cursor rather than directly under the active point. This bug can be viewed either as mailnews tooltips not having the same offset as the browser, or that the tooltip does not pass the mouse click on to the item underneath it. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Send yourself a message with a very long subject line 2. Check your mail so the message is now in your inbox. 3. Position your mouse over the message subject so that the tooltip appears 4. Before the tooltip disappears, try to click or double click the message. Actual Results: Nothing happens - the click is blocked by the tooltip. Expected Results: Clicking or double-clicking should select or open the message.
Heh, let me guess: Pinstripe theme, right? If so, dup of bug 200234.
Nice catch. I'm not using Pinstripe, but I am using Orbit3+1. When I switch to Modern the bug is gone.
