Description

18 years ago
There is a visible delay between clicking on a link and the actual initiation of
the drag.  This often prevents me from successfully dragging things.  Tested on
Linux Build 2000071308, but seen frequently in the past.  You can see this by
quickly mousing over a link, clicking, and dragging in one motion.  The link
color will change to active, indicating that the mousedown was registered, but
the drag does not start.  This bug is most easily seen on pages that have
different colors for link and alink, like http://www.mozilla.org/

Whoops, this should have been event handling.  Changing component and owner.

This bug has been marked "future" because the original netscape engineer
working on this is over-burdened. If you feel this is an error, that you or
another known resource will be working on this bug,or if it blocks your work in
some way -- please attach your concern to the bug for reconsideration.

Event Handling probably isn't the right component anyway.  D&D should go to
XPToolkit, so reassigning.

This works pretty well for me too (linux/mac/win32 current builds). I do recall
when there was a much greater, and more noticeable lag in the init of the drag,
but it seems fine to me now (either in HTML pages or in the mailnews threadPane
where it could also get behind the drag).

Jeffrey: how does it look to you?
