Type 3 crash with "Go" menu, problems with text entry, and more
Using newest version M12 Mozilla Build ID: 199912211. Running in Mac OS 9. I am using Mozilla for the first time tonight and here is a list of the bugs I've encountered. #1. Cannot log into Hotmail. Clicking the "Sign In" button does nothing. #2. When entering text into this report, the window remains stationary while you type in text that is off the screen. This also occurred when typing in a comment to the www.imusic.com message board and the www.thecreatures.com message board. It appears this a problem with all postings. The window is now scrolling wildly as I am writing this. It appears that the browser has a lot of problems with large amounts of text. There are single spaces which appear to the left of new lines of text. Sometimes when you attempt to insert the cursor into the middle of a sentence the cursor jumps to another random place in the text and the window will scroll. #3. Pop-up selection lists don't scroll often and when they do, the top of the pop-up menu is missing. www.macfixit.com (forums). #4. When you submit a form, the "auto-fill" window comes up that tells you about the auto-fill feature (I forgot your term for it). When you dismiss the window, the browser ceases to work. You must close the main window and open a new one in order to continue browsing. www.thecreatures.com (message board) and www.macfixit.com (message board). Once you have dismissed the atuo-fill notification and opened a new window and gone back to the page, it does not pop up again when you post a message. However, it will come back when posting to another site. #5. Can't change themes. I even tried the documented trick of opening another main browser window. #6. When you highlight text, the "copy" command is unavailable from the Edit menu. Copying working with the keyboard command. #7. When you drag the right side of the Panels window to try to hide it, the white space within the Panels window will come out over the right window border and overlap if you drag the window over too far to the left. I don't like the Panels window at all and I hope it can be completely disabled in the final version. #8. Some links do not show up as links. They show up as plain text only. One such instance occurs just after posting a message to a www.imusic.com message board. In the www.macfixit.com forums, there are links back to the previous forums you have been in at the top right of the page. These links show up as text not as links. #9. The cursor will jump backwards in a line of text at random when entering text into a form. Sometimes you cannot enter spaces between words; the window will scroll up. #10. When I had registered for Bugzilla, I went to the link about "how to report bugs" and then read the "most often reported bugs list." Then I went to the "Go" menu to try to go back to the "Enter bug" page. Mozilla crashed with a type 3 error.

Whiteboard: needs to be split or duplicates found (2000-01-12)
I suspect many of these problems are duplicates. However, the ones that aren't are unlikely to be fixed unless somebody files them as separate bugs.
elig, cleaning up the 'nobody' Browser-General. This is a lot of possibel bugs in one. Can you tear apart this one whilst I move on to the others? Thanks!
email@example.com, in the future, please be sure to submit separate bug reports separately, with one issue per bug report. Mega-bugs like this one tend to be closed out because they're too unwieldy to handle. #1: hotmail. Sounds like a duplicate. Please feel free to check on a current build and submit as a separate bug if not. #2: Not sure if a bug exists for this. Will check. #3: Pop-ups are still busted; this is probably a duplicate. Please feel free to check on a current build and submit as a separate bug. #4: This sounds obvious and annoying enough that I assume it must have been reported. Please feel free to check on a current build and submit as a separate bug. #5: Themes not really implemented yet. #6: 14026, I think. #7: Sounds like a known sidebar problem. Not certain. Please feel free to check on a current build and submit as a separate bug. #8: I'm not seeing this. Please feel free to check on a current build and submit as a separate bug. #9: Please feel free to supply a reproducible test case using a current build, and submit as a separate bug. #10: Please feel free to supply a reproducible test case using a current build, and submit as a separate bug.

Resolution: --- → WORKSFORME
I'm going to resolve this all as WORKSFORME. I don't mean to be a jerk and do appreciate your taking the time to provide the feedback. (Unfortunately, just going through this one bug report would take a half-day, most of the issues here are already known, and I'd be surprised if there's anything new. If these were submitted as separate bug reports, it would be easy to send them to the appropriate QA contacts who'd know whether open bugs existed or not.) Please feel free to get a nightly build, query for dupes, and write up individual issues for ones that aren't already known. --- #2 itself comprises a half-dozen or so issues, most of which I can't reproduce on a current build. The space appearing as the first character is a known bug that jfrancis is dealing with.
Rubber-stamping as verified.
