From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.12-32 i686)
BuildID:    2000080712

clicking on a node the first time will expand it.  after that, clicking on nodes
has no effect.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. click on tree nodes.

Actual Results:  nothing after the first click.								

Expected Results:  the tree should collapse or expand.							

This works nicely in both Netscape 4 and IE 5.

Using Mozilla tip builds 2000-08-21 on WinNT, Linux. 
Confirming bug.

On Linux: a tree node will only collapse/expand once
On WinNT: a tree node will collapse/expand several times, but once you 
          move to another node, that one will collapse/expand only once 

No errors are indicated in the JavaScript Console.
In the debug console, I see the following:  

On Linux: no messages whatsoever when I click any tree node
On WinNT: when the collapse/expand is working, I see (twice): 

                     Enabling Quirk StyleSheet

          when the collapse/expand fails for the first time, I see (twice):

                     WARNING: not supported for views, 
                     file d:\mozilla\view\src\nsScrollPortView.cpp, line 98

From then on, the collapse/expand does not work at all, and no more messages
are seen in the debug console -

Well, this is an html document that implements a tree in DHTML, so it's Layout
not XPToolkit/Trees. However, looking in the frame source code, I see the classic
'if {document.layers) {} else if (document.all) {}', which is a pretty fair
indication that this bug is INVALID (not a bug, since document.(layers|all) do
not exist as part of the W3C DOM.

[*&@#& what is up with the form submission. Resetting some other values that
got stomped on. Sorry for the spam, but eating dogfood is not always perfect :-]

In principle, it is perfectly alright to do 

           if (document.layers)
           if (document.all)

Many pages sniff for the browser this way. Leaving out the
"if"'s would be the classic mistake making the bug invalid.

It may be that the author of the page goofed up in that both
the above expressions will evaluate to False in Mozilla, 
but that will require further analysis. 

An interesting question is, Why is Mozilla's behavior so different here
on WinNT and Linux? Why is it that on WinNT, a node will open and close 
just fine, and not malfunction until you move to another node? 

Why do we get the message 

           WARNING: not supported for views, 
           file d:\mozilla\view\src\nsScrollPortView.cpp, line 98

when the malfunction occurs?

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.
