User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.9.0.3) Gecko/2008091700 SUSE/3.0.3-1.1 Firefox/3.0.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.9.0.3) Gecko/2008091700 SUSE/3.0.3-1.1 Firefox/3.0.3

Symptoms:

Clicking icon to bring up window causes a window outline to appear for a
moment then blink off.  Window blind mode shows that the window is
behind the main window.  Obscuring the window (with some unrelated
process window) then exposing will reveal the twitter window. Sometimes,
opening another page in another tab on Firefox shows the twitter window.
 In all cases, bringing the mouse into the twitter window causes the
twitter window to close, and the original Firefox window to open.

This is likely a Firefox bug, because it is similar to another bug with very similar symptoms that was fixed recently.  It only happens when the windowmanager is Windowmaker.  It does not happen when the windowmanager is Gnome.  (KDE not checked).

Linux version 2.6.25.18-0.2-default (geeko@buildhost) (gcc version 4.3.1

WindowMaker version 0.92.0

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.9.0.3)
Gecko/2008091700 SUSE/3.0.3-1.1 Firefox/3.0.3


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click twitterfox icon to pop up window
2. Use window blind mode on Windowmaker to expose window. 
3. Bring mouse into popup Window
Actual Results:  
Popup window outline will be momentarily visible, then hidden.  Popup window is exposed when window is moved or hidden.  Popup window closes the moment the mouse is moved onto it.

Expected Results:  
Popup window exposed and usable.

I think this is a firefox bug given it's strong similarity to another firefox bug that was fixed.  Windowmaker has never done anything like this before.

(If you do find that it is a Windowmaker bug, please let me know so that I can get them to work on it.)
This is a mass search for bugs which are in the Firefox General component, are
UNCO, have not been changed for 500 days and have an unspecified version.
