It's as though moving the cursor over the listbox causes it to open momentarily and if the list overlaps a plug-in, the plug-in re-paints. When plug-in re-paints, the plug-in area flickers. Not only is this annoying for users but is also an accessibility issue for users who are sensitive to screen flickering. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a <select> with lots of <options> and put it before a plug-in (<object>). 2. Move cursor over the <select> list. Actual Results: When the mouse moves over the listbox, something opens and closes over the listbox. Expected Results: Nothing should open / close over the listbox when the mouse is moved over it.
It sounds like we're invalidating the area covered by the combobox dropdown when the user mousesover a combobox <select>, even when the dropdown is hidden. I can see how that could happen and it should be relatively simple to fix.
I can't reproduce having the area invalidate in GTK2 (but without the plugin, of course). Could this be Windows only?
It's okay on the Mac so it could be a Windows only problem.
This bug was reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.3 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME http://www.mozilla.com http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Safe+mode
Version: unspecified → 1.0 Branch
The problem is reproducible in FF 3.6.3. Although the plugin area repains (flashes) only the first time the cursor is moved over the list box. I am okay if you mark this bug as wontfix.
Are you seeing this issue with Firefox 4?
Cannot reproduce with FF 4. Feel free to close this bug.
