From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; N; WinNT4.0; en-US; m14) BuildID: 2000032808 If I pulldown a selection list and then, while it is pulled down scroll using my Genius Netmouse (non-gfx-scrollbars, so netmouse will work), the page scrolls but over top of it, the pulled down menu floats. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to the listed URL :-) and pull down, for instance, the menu which selects the type of search next to the Summary box. 2. While it is down, scroll the page using the mousewheel Actual Results: The box with the options remains floating over the scrolling page and is still active (i.e., I can select an option from it) Expected Results: Either the option list would go away upon scrolling or else the list would scroll with the page. This is almost definitely related to bug 22794

nominating for nsbeta2 based on: - visibility - feature broken
Can PDT get a retest here please. Also do not think that we are supporting navtive scrollbars. Are we?
Whiteboard: [NEED INFO]
Still broken. I checked Opera, IE and Navigator and in those three, clicking down a pull-down picklist makes the mousewheel affect the pull-down list instead of the entire window. As to whether you are supporting native scrollbars or not, I couldn't say, but the gfx scrollbars don't work with teh Genius Netmouse and it's pretty frustrating to have Mozilla require a different method of scrolling.
This is a hard issue to solve and it won't get fixed for beta2, plus I don't want to spend a lot of time on it with native scrollbars in the dropdown when we will be turning on Gfx scrollbars for the dropdown (hopefully) early in M17.
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
In that case, I'd advise marking it as dependant on bug 22794. I currently have to use native scrollbars if I want to use my netmouse "wheel" at all.
Here is what is going on. Go to nsWindow.cpp on Windows and search for the string "33733" Turn on the ifdef. Now what happens is, when you dropdown the combobox and the mouse is over the dropdown the MouseWheel scrolls the dropdown. When the mouse is over the content window or even more importanly when it is over the combobox control (not the dropdown) in the content window the Window scrolls. When a MouseWheel event comes into the event state manager it needs to find out what piece of content has focus, then it needs to find out what frame is hit, and it needs to find out if the frame is a Rollup listener. It is is a Rollup listener then the following should happen: If the frame for the focused content and the frame that the mouse is currently over do not match, then ask the Rollup listener to Rollup. If they do match then the ESM needs to ask the Rollup listener for a frame in which to send the MouseWheel event to. Summary: When the dropdown is down (it is implied that the combobox has focus) any event in the content page when the mouse is over the combobox proper should go to the dropdown. When the mouse is over any other part of the content page, the dropdown should be asked to be rolled up and the page should be scrolled.

The mousewheel should only scroll a dropped list if the list is scrollable (i.e. its contents require it to have vertical scrollbars). Otherwise, it should close the list and scroll the page as usual. This is how IE 5.5 behaves, at least on win32.
I disagree with the nsbeta2 nomimation. This can wait.

Markinv rtm. Needs to get fixed, too many people use mouse wheel for this bug to be released.
cc'ing self. FWIW, I agree with Vladimire 110% about the RTM needs for this bug
I tend to disagree. This does not impair mousewheel functionality, at all. It simply requires you to roll up a dropdown list before you mousewheel scroll. I want to fix this the Right Way as rods suggests, but we simply don't have time for 6.0.
Brian is correct, there is no way we will fix this for N6. rtm-

I would encourage a re-think of that position Peter. IMNSHO this bug falls into the "silly" category. A *whole* lot of people are going to hit it. We really don't want to be leaving this kind of impression about the product in people's minds, especially when they can just go back to IE and scroll the *contents* of a combo box with the mouse wheel. My .02 worth.

Looked at 32544 and verifying that as a duplicate of this one. Both involve scrolling and drop down boxes. Bug 32544 is about Moz not scrolling the drop down, whereas this bug is about the drop down not being closed up when the scrolling scrolls the page. Seem different problems, but I agree that the general cause is the same (drop down box scrolling not handled correctly) but are seeing the bug from two different angles. Suggest summary alteration to something more generic? 'Scrolling in a drop-down box not handled correctly' ?? (Suggest that the proposed fix be verified against 32544 before marked as such)
