User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030516 Mozilla Firebird/0.6 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030516 Mozilla Firebird/0.6 When I highlight and copy text into the address bar the next time I use left-click the browser goes back one page in the history. Alternately it will ignore the next right mouse-click. A second try works fine. The indication that the mouse click won' t work properly is that the highlighted text is "stuck" in its "already highlighted" color (grey). Two clicks clears it up. I have the "Text Links" extension installed but the problem occurs even with it disabled or not installed. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Highlight any text (usually a non-link URL) and copy into address bar. 2. Go to URL. Go back to previous page. Highlighted text should be in "already highlighted" color. 3. Left-click, or right click Actual Results: If you left click the browser will go back one page it the history. If you right click nothing happens. Expected Results: Left click (and hold) should let you highlight new text Right click should bring up browser menu. I have just (really, right- now) discovered another way to recreate the bug. Double click anywhere in text, and everything up to the last space is highlighted. Right-click and the menu which should appear does not. Right-clicking will then (maybe) take you back a page. I have been trying to make sense of this bug since I replaced 0.5 with the 05/10/03 nightly.
Michael, this is WFM using FB Gecko/20030610 in Windows XP. Unfortunately I don't have a Linux box present, but just to make sure your environment is not messed up: - did you tried this also after creating a new profile? - does this problem also occur using latest MozillaFirebird nightly together with a vanilla profile? - can you also reproduce this using latest SeaMonkey nightly?
WFM, This is Michael. I haven't tried tried the latest seamonkey build (I usually only use milestones). I have however tested this bug against many different profiles from a clean vanilla profile and slowly adding extensions up to my custom profile. The bug occurs in all instances, just as I described. Also the bug was not there in Phoenix 0.5 or earlier. Michael Grant P.S.: I haven't filed a bug report since Mozilla 0.98 so I hope this is (still) the correct way.
WTM, and blaker As per WTM's suggestion I tried the latest nightly with various profiles. BUG IS GONE (fixed?). I am using the June 11 nightly. Consider this one closed, I guess. Michael Grant
WTM, Me again. After some fooling around I have determined that it is caused by the Mouse Gestures extension (duh!). It seems obvious now and I don't know why I didn't think of this earlier (I thought it might be the TextLink extension). Unfortunately for me mouse gestures are a necessity. I will bring it up with the Mozgest people. Michael Grant
Michael, this is one (out of many) reasons, why we always ask for a new installation of latest nightly, into a new directory together with a vanilla profile - and thus without any extensions installed - just to make sure you've got a clean installation to test. In any case it's good to hear the problem is gone now! :) => resolving invalid per comment #3 + comment #4 since this was not a bug caused by Moz.Firebird
