When you double click the scrollbar (i.e. to scroll up/down arrow button quickly), Mozilla Firebird treats as you double-clicked the item. This might causes security issue when you have downloaded some kind of malware. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: [[ A. Download sidebar ]] <- Windows only 1. Download many files to show scrollbar in download sidebar. 2. Type [Ctrl]+[E] or Click [View]-[Sidebar]-[Downloads]. 3. Select one of the items you downloaded. 4. Double-click scroll up/down arrow button (small triangle) quickly. Actual Results: The item you selected launches unexpectedly without any confirmation. [[ B. History sidebar ]] <- All 1. Visit and open many pages to show scrollbar in history sidebar. 2. Type [Ctrl]+[H] or Click [View]-[Sidebar]-[History]. 3. Click [View]-[By Last Visited]. 4. Click to select one page from sidebar. 5. Double-click scroll up/down arrow button (small triangle) quickly. Actual Results: The page you selected opens unexpectedly in current tab. Expected Results: Nothing. Clicking or double-clicking scroll bar should just to scroll.
Confirmed on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030603 Mozilla Firebird/0.6 Not sure this is part of the Downloading component, the components aren't quite as clear as in Browser. As for the security concern, beside that its a bit of an annoying bug and may indicate a flaw in how the sidebar was implemented in Firebird.
Confirming using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030603 Mozilla Firebird/0.6 => changing status to "new" since I didn't find an already filed bug report for this. Not sure about the component, I'd see this more in "General" since no component seems to fit 100%

Comment on attachment 127355 [details] [diff] [review] proposed patch Blake, could you take a look at this? This patch fixes bustage on double-clicking scrollbar. I'm sure that this is some sort of security fix. And very low risk to checking in.
