Description

15 years ago
If I have some text in position:relative, position:absolute or position:fixed
box, then when I select this text with mouse and then mouve mousepointer over
some other block (without releasign mouse pointer) I could not get mouseover
event for this second block. Only if text container is position:static selection
does not prevent omouseover.

But there is no cause for positioning to prevent onmouseover events.

personally i'd rather mozilla not pass events to the document while i'm making a
selection, but something tells me web authors will scream bloody murder.

After the checkin of the patch in bug 53966 the testcase now works for fixed,
absolute and relative, too. Tested with a Linux trunk build from today.
