when hovering a mouse over a button, item on drop list, or a URL on the Mozilla
frames/lines [i.e., bookmarks, "back" button, print button] the item stays
emphasized for about 1/2 second then the highlite/emphasis goes away.  slight
movement of mouse, staying within bounds of item, reignites the emphasis mometarily.

button/link works normally.  

[not talking about URLs on the web page content]

does not occur for buttons at bottom left [to run chatzilla, mail program etc.]

reinstalling does not end problem.

using compaq presario, with Win XP, home edition Version 2002, SP1, updated with
updates as requested.  mention this because i don't recall this happening on
first install of the 1.6, though i may just have not noticed.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  run mozilla

Actual Results:  
buttons still work, depiste absence of highlighting.

Expected Results:  
stay highlited

correction on the report:  URL's on HTML pages, that do -not- have an underline,
will display an underline momentarily, in a manner similar to the other reported
behavior.  These URLs do work .

Which theme are you seeing this in?
Did you uninstall any eventual older version before installing Mozilla 1.6?
Have you installed any Mozilla-related addons/extentions?
Is more than one monitor connected to your PC?
URL: none

The two monitors....that is it.  i am always using mozilla on the 2nd screen.

A bit of testing...if i drag the window back to the laptop's screen, in whole or
part, and then exercise a button there, it works.  the buttons behave if
minimized and returned to the 2nd monitor, but if i move the window around the
bad behavior returns, tho not for all things [the url's seem to stay behaved]

various variants of moving the window around [fully to the first screen,
half/half, exercising buttons of the different bits of the window split between
two screens] all these things can generate variations in behavior.

standard [classic] theme.   no addons.  i believe i did uninstall 1.5, before
installing 1.6.   same behavior in 1.5, tho.  also, using 2 monitors while 1.5
was installed.

Thanks. There's a whole little army of these. Bug 135079, bug 130527, bug
134547, bug 159277, bug 141599, to mention a few...
A hint in older instances of the bug was to re-locate the monitors. Strange
things happen when mozilla is in negative coordinate-space. Perhaps worth a try.

reopened to mention this:  unlike the other reports i saw, in/among the various
bug#'s listed here and within those chains, my 2nd monitor is to the -right- of
the main laptop in display space, not to the left.  actually:

         111111111   2222222222222222
         111111111   2222222222222222
         111111111   2222222222222222
         111111111   2222222222222222

also, unlike other reports, all my buttons and URL's have least as
far as i can tell. [perhaps they are reacquiring focus just on the click?]  have
not tested with an "enter" or control-enter.  have not knowingly tested URLs on
sites with java onmouse to see if there are proper responses - tho i suspect
problems thinking on it.  [the dual display machine is not in front of me, now...]

if i recall correctly, the bug will occur in circumstances where Moz1.6
straddles the 1-2 boundary, ergo the whole of it is not above the top of 1.

see comment #22 for bug 135079: whose math and image confuses me, even tho i am
an engineer.

"The bug will occur whenever the application is placed on the secondary monitor,
-if- the secondary monitor is placed within the 180 degrees of 225 - 45
(top-right, top, top-left, left, bottom-left) of the primary monitor."

...therefore...not sure if this person's note is within the scope of my 1-2
display arrangement.

Activity in duplicates is likely lost on those who might have cared.
Please add comments that can throw a light on the problem in the bug this is
dup'ed to. Re-dup'ing.
