[DOGFOOD][bugday] mail news buttons disappear on click and mouse-over


(SeaMonkey :: MailNews: Message Display, defect, P3)

Windows 98


(Not tracked)



(Reporter: asa, Assigned: hangas)


(Whiteboard: [PDT+])

tested on windows 98 build 120608

issue: the 'next', 'delete', 'print', and 'stop' button images disappear after
you click on them.  also the 'get msg', 'new msg', 'reply', 'reply all', and
'forward' buttons disappear / are lost on mouse-over. Functionality seems to

steps to reproduce: open mail. click on next, delete, print, or stop buttons.
watch them disappear.  move mouse over the get msg, new msg, reply, reply all,
or forward buttons. watch them disappear.

expected behavior: buttons should not disappear on click or mouse-over.
I'm not seeing this in my debug build from today. Lisa?
addiional information:  the buttons with circle images (get msg, new msg, reply,
reply all, and forward) all function fine on mouse-over as long as you have not
pressed one of the buttons which disappear on clicking (next, delete, print, and
stop.  After pressing one of the buttons that disappear on clicking, then the
other buttons become succeptable to the disappearing on mouse-over problem.

final probably irrelevant note: the buttons that disappear on mouse-over
disappear completely (except for the get msg button which leaves behind some
small non-geometric visual artifact) while the buttons that disappear on
clicking leave behind a square outline with a dot in the center.
Is this happening only to the mail toolbars, or it it also happening to browser
Let me try this shortly.
I'll try first with 12/6 build and then the 12/7 build.

Asa tells me it's only in mail.
Phil, I reproduced this in 12/6 win32 build.  I'll try 12/7 next, but asa says
the bug is there.

Sending to Eric.  I was not able to reproduce the bug as easily as explained in
the first entry of this bug.  I had to:
1) Bring up the Mail News window
2) Click the New Message button
3) Close the New Message window
4) click the stop button on the Mail News window
5) move the mouse across all the buttons in the toolbar

Results: all the buttons dissapear, all new icons drawn in this window are drawn
as a small square.

I was able to do these steps on Windows and Mac to see the problem.
Using steps described by hangas I reproduced the problem on Linux.

This is a dogfood issue.

This happens because MsgStop is called when clicked on that somehow corrupts the
ui. If you remove the on click handler at line 536 in messenger.xul the bug will
not happen.
