I have to correct me: This happens only with the magic mouse. The Trackpad is *NOT* affected.
Mehmet, is that a regression for you? I can't reproduce it on my own box. Are you having add-ons installed?
Version: unspecified → Trunk
Here's the call that closes popups on scroll events:

We can add a check for momentum scroll there.

The difference is that the trackpad stops sending momentum scroll events as soon as the mouse is moved a certain amount of pixels. The magic mouse doesn't.

Screencast

Hi. I think this is not a regression. It also happens in FF5. Not sure, but I think it was also an issue in FF4.

***Please see the enclosed screencast.***

Thanks and regards
