Right clicking on scrollbar while dragging it causes a assertion
I'm nominating this for beta since this happens me very often and always ends in having to restart the browser. I know it depends on your mouse and your style how often you happen to press the right mouse button by mistake, but I'm sure there are many with the same problem out there.
I disagree completely, this scenario is so unlikely that I expect you're the only one to ever see it. If I'm wrong, it should be easy to prove by pointing to other crashes in Talkback. This is not worth the risk of fixing this close to beta1.
Peter, this is either an Eric bug or someone in the browser group.
Thanks RodS, but I wanted to test this first. Crash may only be happening on Win2K; I can't reproduce on Win98 or Linux, and Mac doesn't have a right button. Bringing up context menu in this exact circumstance is incorrect though, and may not ever be appropriate for scrollbars (other bug reports cover the general case).

I just noticed that Netscape 4.72 _has_ a popupmenu for the scrollbar. How strange. It contains "Scroll here", "Top", "Bottom", "Page Up", "Page Down", "Scroll Up", "Scroll Down". If Mozilla will have popups for scrollbars, that would as good items in the menu as any.
Hyatt, This happens because it trys to popup a popup. Why would it try to do that? -E

The assertion and the uncaught exception in js are the same bug (which is actually covered in bug #7639 ---- XULElement::GetStyle is indeed not implemented). This is not specfic to win2k; I get the same behaviour on win95, but on neither platform do I get a crash in a release build (leaving aside the assertion). I note though, that win2k does provide a new popup menu on native scrollbars (as described above). By the way, I see that joki fixed bug #23373 with a change to nsXULPopupListener.cpp that makes preventDefault work -- is this what was needed to fix this bug?

Daniel: that popup menu you're seeing for scrollbars in NS 4.x is just the generic win2k context menu for native scrollbars. Eric: I noticed you said that this was caused because it was trying to bring up a popup menu. Now that bug 27289 has been fixed for the scrollbar, and soon the thumb, is this bug valid anymore?
the code in nsContextMenu.js now avoids using .style on a XUL element, so this assertion is no longer triggered. Marking worksforme.
