Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.13) Gecko/20080313 SeaMonkey/1.1.9 Mnenhy/0.7.4.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.13) Gecko/20080313 SeaMonkey/1.1.9 Mnenhy/0.7.4.0

When a list is floated and the list items are set to have position:relative on hover, hovering over the links causes reformatting (wrapping) of the link text that persists after the hover ends, and seems to cycle through internal states.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
In the attachment, hovering over any link seems to put the link into the next of 3 states.  

1. Load page clean.
2. Hover over 'First Link' - all other links wrap to 2 lines
3. Unhover - all other links return to normal
4. Hover over 'first link' again - no change
5. unhover - all other links wrap
6. hover over 'first link' again - all other links return to normal
7. unhover - no change
8. go to step 2

For the very bored, this can be played like a logic puzzle: slide the mouse across the set of links, randomly hovering.  Then try to get it back to all non-wrapped by hovering/unhovering over particular links.



Linux only.  I can reproduce this in both seamonkey (Gecko/20080313) and firefox (Gecko/20080201) but not on windows.

I see this with SM 1.1.9, but not current trunk.  Can you try a trunk build of SeaMonkey?
