Build ID: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:2.0b8pre) Gecko/20101013 Firefox/4.0b8pre ========================================================================== Steps: 1. Make sure you have a top site opened in a tab 2. Bring up the Web Console 3. Browse some links in the page in the same tab 4. Notice traffic observation messages are echoed (blue links) 5. Left click outside one of the message =========================================================================== Behavior: Entire line containing network event is recognized as clickable area. We should be able to select only the exact link in the console. Performing mouse events outside the designated areas is confusing.
This isn't actually a duplicate of bug 594477. That other bug was dealing with the problem of right clicking and having the network panel come up. This bug is talking about clicking outside of the visible "link". Part of bug 599498 is going to dramatically change how the logging output area looks. I believe this bug will automatically be dealt with there.
Change to Reopened and keeping track of this in addition to landing of bug 599498

I think this is that bug.
I'm thinking this should block 2.0, as it is unexpected behavior.
Patrick: does your output area work take care of this?
