1. Open http://www.mozilla.org/ 2. Right-click on a link. 3. With the context menu still up, right-click on another link. The second link should be focused. Note that "open link in new window" correctly opens the second link.
Yep, I'm seeing this as well, using a brand new build. I don't think this is a new problem, though.
Whaddya know? A side-effect of my suggested fix to bug 30841 is that it fixes this bug as well. Marking this bug dependent on that one. There appear, however, to be some underlying problems with right-clicking focusing links. For example, if I right-click on a link in the footer on the Bugzilla query page, it never receives the focus rectangle.
Depends on: 30841
Fix for 30841 doesn't fix this for me...?
Really? Odd. I did the following with the "else if" and I got the symptoms described in the bug, and then with the "if" and it worked as expected. 1. Open www.mozilla.org. 2. Right-click on "Get Involved" 3. Right-click on "Feedback" right above that. The "Feedback" link gets the focus rect. Note that not all links seem to be focussing on a click, like the "more..." links, and the "The Mozilla Organization", "Developer Docs", "Testing", "Tools", "FAQ", and "Search" links. But these never focus on a right-click, so that's a different bug.
Nope, doesn't work for me...
cc: pink and saari Any chance either of you could try this sometime and report what you get?
Just re-pulled everything and built from scratch. Confirmed that the bug existed as reported. Made the change I suggest in 30841. Works as expected. Win2000 sp1
This isn't specific to links, by the way. The same should happen for any object that takes focus when right-clicked.
Yeah, there's another bug somewhere about some things not getting focus when you right-click them. But my fix to bug 30841 makes sure that anything that takes focus on a single right-click works under the conditions described in this bug.

Reassigning to Saari. This looks like a focus issue, so I'm not sure why it was reassigned to layout.

Late to the game, I just saw this... so no 8.1 Plus, right clicking for focus is really low on the priority totem pole. Moving to 1.0
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
Target Milestone: mozilla0.8.1 → mozilla1.0
I think I'm really close in 30841, I just haven't had time to go back in and hammer out the regression it causes.

This is working for me in 2001061804 on Win32. 1. Open www.mozilla.org 2. Right-click "At A Glance" (under "The Mozilla Organization") 3. Right-click "Feedback". Expected and Actual Results: "Feedback" link is focused Marking WFM. Note: There are other bugs for right-clicking not focusing links such as "The Mozilla Organization" and the various "more..." links.
