User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 When using the vertical scroll bar by left-clicking and dragging it, you can cause the mouse to "stick" by also right-clicking the scroll bar and releasing the right-click, point to the border so the resize cursor appears, then release the left button from the initial left-click. The vertical scroll bar will now scroll as the mouse moves up and down within proximity to the scroll bar. I actually kind of like using this bug as a feature, though! hehe Reading through the other bug report summaries, it appears that bug # 287959 and 280405 appear to be related to this issue. However, there wasn't enough info to be sure. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Left-click the vertical scroll bar and hold it down (starting the drag operation) 2. Right-click and release the vertical scroll bar while still holding down the left button 3. Move the mouse to the border of the window so that the resize cursor appears 4. Now release the left mouse button and the scroll bar will follow the cursor as you move it, so long as the cursor is within close proximity of the scroll bar and not outside of the form boundaries. Actual Results: I can scroll a web page verticall just by moving my mouse up and down without any buttons. To release the scrolling state, simply just left-click again. Expected Results: Use this as a feature when you right-click on the scroll bar .. hehe. Call it a sticky scroll bar. I think the real problem is in the right-clicking of the scroll bar shouldn't "release" some scrolling state so that the other events don't occur when you mouse-over them.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050329 Firefox/1.0+ I also see this happen when i do the steps you outlined. I tried to do this with MSIE, but could not reporduce it there. I would consider this isolated to Firefox. Changes: -Adding CC to keep track of this bug. -Adding keyword "helpwanted" This is for "Bugs or features which require coding assistance to fix or implement." -Changing Component to "OS Integration" for two reasons. For a bug to be confirmed it has to be placed in a more specific category. Second, OS Integration is described as follows, "Areas where Firefox integrates with the host desktop environment." This will also change the QA contact individual. -Changing status to NEW to confirm this unexpected occurance and that it is a flaw/perk of Firefox that needs to be dealt with (either by fixing or being made public). Thank you, Richard Nielsen, for submitting this report. If you have any other comments to make about this issue, please feel free to add them as this report and it's respective issue is processed. Note to QA technician: The bogs refered to in the original report are unrelated. 287959 is constant, everyday use. 280405 is an issue with the multi-function middle mouse button.
