When I switch back to Firebird, I have to click to stop scrolling or selecting. Note: the similar effect can be achive by pressing Start button on Windows keyboard. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Launch Notepad 2. In Mozilla, start scrolling by dragging the scrollbar's thumb 3. Without releasing mouse button, press Alt+Tab to switch to Notepad ALTERNATIVELY: press Start button on Windows keyboard, press Ctrl+Esc for start menu, press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to launch Program Manager, etc. Actual Results: Mozilla is still scrolling/selecting although it is not active anymore. Expected Results: Stop scrolling/selecting at the moment it losts focus.
Great - I faced this problem every now and then, but newer realized a way to really reproduce it! :) Nevertheless this can also be seen using Mozilla SeaMonkey (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030603 - hence this one belongs to Product "Browser" after searching for possible dupes. btw: you missed to mention step 4. in your steps to reproduce: you have to release mouse button once switched to notepad and 5. you have to switch switch back to Moz.Firebird / SeaMonkey and hover over the scroll bar + move mouse => by doing so you realise that scrolling is still enabled though mouse button has been released.
Should go to Browser -> Event Handling if I understand correctly. Moz is not recognizing the release of the mouse button because it happens outside of the app. Able to duplicate in Mozilla Thunderbird too, definitely on the trunk and not related to any specific app. Windows in some cases will not recognize release of keys or mouse buttons, I used to have it happen playing quake and fall off rooftops, but this is a little newer.
Did also some search in Bugzilla bit wasn't able to find a related bug => moving over to SeaMonkey...
