The summary pretty much says it all.  I am in a browser window.  I left click
anywhere in the window, either on a link or not, and there is a sudden
scroll-down - about the height of a line of large text.  This would be
unreportably trivial if it weren't for the fact that this scroll prevents links
that I'm clicking at the time from being followed.

Very hard to say exactly what makes it happen, but it happens very regularly. 
It may be that you have to have already scrolled in the window, I'm still not
sure after some experimentation. I was using Mozilla 1.3 for most of the time
this was happening, but it still happens with 1.4 RC2.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open browser window.
2.Possibly, scroll down.
3.Left click.

Actual Results:  
Small downward scroll.  Link I was clicking is not followed.

Oops, not always reproducible.  Frequent, but a low proportion.

Never had a problem, and I've been using Mozilla since the pre-1.4rc1 days. 
Does this still ocurr in recent versions?  And does this ocurr in any other
applications?  You might want to try upgrading your mouse drivers (if there are
new versions.)
