When viewing the drop-down list of previously typed URL's in Mozilla, the
vertical scroll-bar thinks it's selected (i.e. it thinks you're still
left-clicking on it) when in fact it is not. This results in automatic scrolling
of the URL list if you move your mouse up or down.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press the downward arrow to expand the drop-down list of previously typed
URL's in Mozilla.
2. Click and drag the scroll bar all the way down the the bottom of the field.
Keeping the mouse button held down, move the mouse out of the URL list and on to
the page somewhere.
3. Release the mouse button and move the mouse cursor in to the URL list. The
entire list should scroll up and down according to where the mouse is within the

Actual Results:  
The URL list scrolls with mouse movement.

Expected Results:  
Unless this is intended behaviour, nothing should have happened. The scroll bar
should be unselected when the mouse button is no longer held down.

Using the 'classic' theme. Have not tried with the 'modern' theme.

OS is Fedora Core 2, using an official Fedora build of Mozilla 1.7.2.

This 'bug' doesnt appear to happen with the scroll bar of the main window.
