User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030616 Mozilla Firebird/0.6 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030616 Mozilla Firebird/0.6 I have an account on a game-swapping site, for which I am a system admin. the address is www.tradegamesnow.com. As part of our service, we hook up people that want to swap games. We use a built-in messenger servvice that lets the users use web forms to leave comments for each other. When these "swaps" are set to a "Pending" status, then ONLY THOSE pages cannot be displayed properly: the form actually displays in the browser window TWICE, one atop the other with a scroll bar, and the text field is unclickable. This error DOES NOT HAPPEN IN ANY OTHER MOZILLA BUILD, and seems limited only to Firebird. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Not sure how to reproduce, since this happens on a site requiring a login, which I naturally don't desire to make public. I can however send you View Source info for the page in question if it will help you find out what characters or code in the page is causing the error. Actual Results: Every time a page is loaded that's in "Pending" status on our site, the web form locks. No other types of messages, which use the same web form have this issue. Expected Results: Text should be allowed to be entered into the web form. The browser displays web forms from any oher status message, and IE and Mozilla both allow text to be entered as normal.
I have not determined how to duplicate this bug happening myself, but it has happened exactly as described below to me several times since Firebird 0.6. Basically I'll be on a page with just a simple form. Several fields, 1 field, it doesn't seem to matter. It seems random as far as I can tell. I click on a field and BAM, my mouse jumps down past the end of the page, where a second copy of the same page exists. I scroll up, and click in the first page's form field and BAM it jumps me to the duplicate page down below. I can't type anything in the fields either... It tends to freeze that window pretty hard sometimes too. It happens about once every 2 days to me, and I use my browser extensively at work. Linux, RedHat 7.3. Most recently it happened on a SECURE page, inside a frame, but I am sure I have seen it on non-secure non-framed pages too. I'll try to duplicate more...
Just tried to reproduce this bug with the testcase provided by Andrew, but had no luck using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030828 Firebird/0.6.1+ So just to make sure we all do the same things: - I open a html-file with the provided source - I click into the datafield and enter some text - the text shows up as I type it Is there anything missing? Does this problem occur every time using the provided testcase or is it sporadic? Finally: is this problem still reproducible using latest nightly together with a fresh profile? Bernard: can you reproduce your problem with the testcase provided by Andrew? => changing OS to all since we have Win2k and Linux & taking QA

I tried the testcase code provided in Firebird 0.6.1 (Gecko/20030728) and was not able to reproduce the bug. It must have been introduced in 0.6.0 and fixed by 0.6.1 somehow. Looks like it's been fixed, because when I got 0.6.0 I was able to reproduce it with that HTML code everytime. Guess we can either: 1) Assume it's fixed and move on, or 2) re-install an old 0.6.0 Firebird to further debug the issue and see if it was fixed or if it's just lying dormant :)... I vote for option 1). :) Thanks!
