From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; m18) Gecko/20000902 BuildID: 2000090208 If in My Sydebar, like in my case, we only have the Bookmarks tab active, when we pass the cursor over the word Bookmarks, the cursor becomes a "finger pointing" cursor, and this is not useful because we cannot do anything if we left-click or right-click. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Have on My Sidebar only active the Bookmarks tab. 2.Go with the mouse over the word "Bookmarks" on My Sidebar. Actual Results: The cursor changes to a "pointing finger" cursor type, and there is no functionality if we click with any mouse button. Expected Results: Remain the same type of cursor although the mouse is over the word "Bookmarks".
This isn't online with the Bookmarks tab, but with all of them. I don't know if this is a problem or a WONTFIX. -> Sidebar

Summary: Why hand cursor over Bookmarks on My Sidebar? → Cursor should be pointer when over open Sidebar tab
I think my problem falls into the same category. This is on Linux with the CVS sources as of last night (2000-09-08) and quite some time before. If you move the cursor from the the main window, passing the slider are drag button one of the following happens: - if you pass the button the cursor changes to the pointing hand and stays like this in the sidebar - if instead the mouse is passing only the border of the sidebar (where you can drag but not collapse) the cursor changes to the left-right arrows and stays like this - if you do either with sufficiently high speed the cursor stays the same as in the main window (means it remains to be the normal arrow) - as soon as the mouse is moved up to the tabs of the sidebar (I have the bookmark tab open, so that there is none below) the cursor changes to the correct normal arrow While I could leave with either the normal arrow or the hand, the left-right arrows are annoying since I never can remember where the hot spot of this cursor is.
hey guys, This is a very recent regression from I think the patch for bug 5693. I noticed that all my links with :hover no longer work with a pointer while links without :hover render the pointer correctly. I think the component should be event handling for this bug and depends on fixing the patch for bug 5693. I will report the broken cursor in 5693. Should be an easy fix...
Opps wrong bug :-). Sorry about the SPAM.
Reassigning 50 Sidebar bugs to Matt. I was told this was going to be done shortly about two months ago, but it clearly hasn't been. I think that's long enough for all these bugs to remain assigned to nobody. Feel free to filter all this spam into the trashcan by looking for this string in the message body: ducksgoquack

I'm not seeing this bug, but it sounds very similar to bug 26585.

I think we could close this bug because now in Mozilla 0.9.1 2001060703 (WinME), I place the mouse pointer over the word "Bookmarks" on My Sidebar and the cursor doesn't change to a "finger pointing" cursos. Can anyone verify this?
