This is a free online chess site, based out of the UK.

To make a move, you are supposed to just click on the chess piece to move then
the destination square.

Using Mozilla, this cannot be done.  The mouse cursor remains a pointer (rather
than turning into a hand icon) and clicking on a piece then a destination square
has no effect.  With IE there is no problem at all.

To test, login with the following information:

Password: test

There will already be a game in progress - white has moved a piece.  Try to respond.

The new bug submission process seems different with Tech Evangelism than I'm
used to with the Browser component.

This was tested with a 5/5-09 build of Mozilla.  (Not using a newer build
because of bug 242856.)

Ack!  I broke the cardinal rule of not testing with a new profile - under which
it worked just find.  

However.  I'm not sure if there isn't something wrong after all.  When I try to
move with my own profile I get JavaScript Console errors popping up:

"Error: uncaught exception: Permission denied to set property HTMLImageElement.src"

These errors do NOT appear under the clean profile.  Have I set something in my
own profile that's exposing an underlying problem?  A clean profile may just be
a "workaround" to something that should actually be addressed.

I re-checked all of the allow JavaScript functions I'd had unchecked but this
did not fix anything, so it's something else.

I got it!  (Partly in part to a trial and error elimination of prefs.js
settings, and because of the lead from the JavaScript error.)

It was:

"user_pref("capability.policy.default.HTMLImageElement.src", "noAccess");"

Once I removed that line, I could move again.

Sorry for the spam - I really should have been able to do this troubleshooting
myself before filing the bug.
