As of this morning's Linux build, it is very diffucult to surf handtyped url's. Build Linux 1999041608. WinNT and Mac check out OK To repro* Start linux apprunner. try to click in the URL bars, as if you were going to type a new url. Try to drag select and delete the whole thing and type a new one or try to set the cursor at the end of the url and delete it. If it works once, I bet it won't work twice. expected* all of these should function normally and you should be able to type a new url, hit enter and go there. actual results* Sometimes you can type and get ot go to your page. More often than not clicking in the url bar triggers 'going forward' and or a reload. Often, you just can't access the url bar. repeated action has yielded a crash on my machine.

I have seen this. The deal used to be, Clicking on the first half of the urlbar used to activate one of the button to the left of the urlbar. For example, clicking at leftmost position of urlbar used to activate back button. Click few pixels to the right, forward button used to activate. If you click in the later half of the urlbar, you would get control of the urlbar and can type in. It looks like a layout problem to me. I'm not sure if this is due to the introduction of the <box> element. ccing ramiro, evaughan, don

aha.. if that is truly the case then this is really a dupe of bug 5217. I should read my own writing. Something did change with this build however. for 5217 there was always the extraneous mouseover action but it didn't trigger the buttons. Now, you get the mouseover AND the button action. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 5217 ***
