Build ID: new trunk

Steps to Reproduce:

(1) Drag-select text in the URL bar
(2) With the mouse button still down, move the cursor out of the textfield.
(3) Pause.

Result: the tooltip for the textfield appears.

This has many manifestations, such as tooltips appearing after you drag and 
drop text out of the URL bar.  Could we add some checks to ensure that the 
mouse is within the bounds of the node?  Or should 
XULPopupListenerImpl::MouseMove only be firing when you're over the node that 
asks for the tooltip, anyways?
sounds like we're not getting the mouseExit event when the mouse is down.
Probably has to do with the mouse capture used in tracking selection.

How about not showing tooltips if a mouse button is down?

This is really annoying and appears in multiple forms.  Any traction on this?

so... if tooltip timer fires and mouse is down, dont display tooltip. that 
should fix it quickly. any problems with that? who is responsible for the 
tooltips comming up?

moving to 9.2, more critical bugs at this point
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.1 → mozilla0.9.2

mjudge's approach would then make this dependent on bug 78248.

you're right it would be dependent on that bug, updating bug to reflect that and 
moving to the same milestone as dependent bug

This is a selection issue; selection should be generating a mouseExit event while 
the mouse is down.
