Time range is not selectable by mouse when “Clear recent history” is opened via shortcut
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:13.0a1) Gecko/20120212 Firefox/13.0a1 Build ID: 20120212031149 Steps to reproduce: This bug appears when accessing the “Clear recent history” window with the keyboard shortcut (ctrl+shift+del) or via the “Privacy” tabs in the preference panel. It does _not_ happen when opening the window through the menu. (Firefox 13/Linux) Actual results: The “Time range to clear” select menu is frozen to the last used option, making impossible to choose a time range. Expected results: The menu should be naturally openable and selectable, exactly like it worked before or when the window is accessed via the menu.

gtk_get_current_event_time is returning the time of an old event due to a nested event loop in ShowModal. The last event in the inner loop (button press) has popped off the current event list and the grab is run off a nsXULPopupShowingEvent. At that point, the event remaining on the current event list is the button release that opened the modal window. A button press has happened since that button release event. Each button press induces an implicit pointer grab, which i assume updates the last-pointer-grab time and so the old time is not new enough for a new grab. I'll write something to come up with a better time than gtk_get_current_event_time.
Hey Karl, Thanks for putting this together. I built TB with this patch, and it seemed to fix the problem. However, I'm getting the following error when attempting to do a try build: /buildbot/try-comm-cen-lnx/build/mozilla/widget/gtk2/nsWindow.cpp: In function 'void UpdateLastInputEventTime(const void*)': /buildbot/try-comm-cen-lnx/build/mozilla/widget/gtk2/nsWindow.cpp:388:69: error: invalid conversion from 'const GdkEvent*' to 'GdkEvent*' /buildbot/try-comm-cen-lnx/build/mozilla/widget/gtk2/nsWindow.cpp:388:69: error: initializing argument 1 of 'guint32 gdk_event_get_time(GdkEvent*)' Is the wrong type being passed somehow? -Mike
The gdk_event_get_time on the build machines needs a GdkEvent* instead of const GdkEvent*.

Karl: This patch seems to fix bug 726410 - however, we're seeing the same popup test failures as before (bug 725685). -Mike
