. comboboxes: Keyboard (no focus), scrollbar doesn't work (mouse)
In Linux snapshoot 2000-02-24-09. Open Preferences|Internet search. The combobox contains a scrollbar, which isn't moveable using the mouse. (If you `drag' the highlighted item, the list scrolls though.) If I focus the check box I can change its state using space, if I now open the combobox, I cannot use screen up/down, home/end, arrow up/down (but space works, it still changes the checkbox state). It isn't always clear where the focus is (hitting several times TAB and you are lost since the items don't show their focused/unfocused state). Clicking on the checkbox and then shift-tab you can use the arrow keys to select an item, using alt/crtl/shift+arrow doesn't open the box (I don't know whether this should be the case, using Windows Alt-arrow-down worked). BTW: In this case the combobox gets its I-have-the-focus drawing style (which persists, when clicking tab to the checkbox) Tobias
This bug is still with us as of 2000031615 i686-pc-linux-gnu. Indeed, the preferences combo boxes are generally horked. The best example is the font preferences box (if you have enough fonts), or the internet search box. The scrollbar on the open combo box simply doesn't work. Unlike the original report, drag-scrolling no longer works. This makes the fonts and search engines on the lower parts of the combo boxes inaccessible. Suggest changing to NEW.
Scratch that. Suggest changing to duplicate of Bug 26508.
blizzard et al: d'you think this should be dup'd...? sure sounds similar.
