Not sure if it's a bug, but it's very inconvenient. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Try to install a new add-on from any site 2.Wait for a notice to appear asking if you want to install. 3.Scroll the page and watch the message vanish. Actual Results: The notice message went away instantly. Expected Results: The notice would stay either at the top of the window or anchored to the page.
So basically you want someone using the Scrollbars (Slider, Arrows) not to dismiss the Notifications, right?
Sorry I didn't make myself that clear. The issue is mainly with the scroll wheel on the mouse. When something pops up at the top of the screen, a common knee-jerk reaction is to scroll up to center it on the screen. This, however, ends up making it disappear. It might be better to have the option for it to wait for the user to close the dialog before it disappears. Or maybe even have a "timeout" before closing. Sorry if I messed something up here. I'm a bit new to bugzilla and beta testing Firefox in general.
