* TITLE/SUMMARY Copy/Cut menu items initially disabled <As noted by shrirang from smoke-testing. Can't find a bug for it in XP Toolkit: Menus, so...) * STEPS TO REPRODUCE 0) Launch Seamonkey 1) Open a browser window 2) Select the contents of the URL bar 3) Open the Edit menu * RESULT - What happened "Cut" and "Copy" are not enabled; only "Paste" is enabled. The keyboard shortcuts, however, do work. It gets more busted from here; I'll add more soon. - What was expected The "Cut" and "Copy" menu items should both be enabled. "Paste" should be enabled, too, if the copy buffer contains content. * REGRESSION - Occurs On Win32 Seamonkey (4.26.00 AM optimized Mozilla build [NT 4, Service Pack 5]) - Doesn't Occur On Mac OS Seamonkey (4.26.00 AM optimized Mozilla build) Linux Seamonkey (4.26.00 AM optimized Netscape build) * CONFIGURATIONS TESTED - [Mac] Beige Power Mac G3 (266 MHz PowerPC 750), 96 MB RAM (VM on; 1 MB of VM used), 1024x768 (Thousands of Colors), Mac OS 8.6 - [Win32] Vectra VL (233 MHz P2), 96 MB RAM, 800x600 (True Color), NT 4.0 SP5. - [Linux] Vectra VL (266 MHz P2), 96 MB RAM. Red Hat Linux 6.0 (GNOME).
More fun: After steps 1-3, close the Edit menu, press the 'Delete' key, and *then* open the Edit menu. Cut/Copy/Paste will not only be disabled, but if you subsequently enter text into the URL field, select it, and open the Edit menu, those menu items will remain disabled.
Shrirang: are there other related issues that you or the #smoketesters found that you'd care to mention, or like me to look into? thanks!
i don't think this belongs in XPMenus (correct me if am wrong)...sounds like something for the editor group.

I'm pretty sure this is a focus issue. Sometimes, in debug builds, you hit assertions in the docviewer controller, because it's being asked about commands that should be going to the editor controller.

Well, I just tried this several times with tonight's build on NT and it seems to be working fine. I'll mark worksforme unless someone else is still seeing this not work or has more information on how to reproduce it. In fact, the more I play with it, it looks like this is working better than ever.
