Description

18 years ago
found this while using the opt comm bits [2000021708] on linux and winNT. not an
issue on mac.

1. dropdown the File menu (need to use the mouse on linux).
2. hit the right arrow key. result: New Navigator Window is selected; this is
expected.
3. hit the right arrow key again. this time the View menu drops down --the Edit
menu was skipped.
4. this is where symptoms on linux and NT diverge: hit the right arrow key a 3rd
time.
results: on linux the Debug menu drops down (several skipped). on winNT, the
File menu drops down (backwards).

5(a). on linux, hit the left key couple of times to go the other direction.
result: browser hangs; various menus are rapidly redrawn (or, rather, redrawing
the outline of various menus) over and over --had to kill seamonkey (went to a
shell where i launched it and issued Ctrl+C while holding down left-mouse
button).

(b). on winNT, also hit the left key a couple of times. the browser also hangs,
tho' i don't see the crazed redrawing as on linux. need to kill browser w/NT
task manager.
