This refers to a pre-DOM Level 2 Events specification for how Gecko handled events. These methods really are deprecated, but apparently still supported. Websites using them should be evangelized into using the proper DOM 2 Events methods (addEventListener), as these methods may actually be *removed* altogether in the future. Recommend INVALID.
IMO, the warning should happen since captureEvents *is* deprecated, and the method call doesn't do *anything* in trunk builds. (It still does do "something" in 1.8) captureEvents was implemented in Netscape 4 and that browser sure is pretty obsolete.
Hi, the error occurs if using firefox 188.8.131.52, and occurs not if using IE6. This issue prevents users from login to oracle metalink. Regards Günter
Sorry, but this is invalid. on 2.x builds captureEvents is (sort of) supported, the message is just a warning that web app is using *deprecated* method. Note, the message doesn't say *obsolete* method or anything like that. And this sure doesn't prevent any functionality. If you can't login to "oracle metalink", the problem is somewhere elsewhere.
