NOT reproducible with DE SeaMonkey 2.35(γ)  (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:38.0 nightly by Adrian Kalla)  Gecko/20100101 Build 20150616034436 (Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit

I am not sure whether I understand all details, report is a little imprecise.

@reporter: Still a problem with 2.35.1? If yes, please

c) add information

Never confirmed by a second user, no response, so I close this one for now.
@Reporter: Please feel free to reopen this Bug if you still can reproduce the problem with a current SeaMonkey version and a current OS and if you can contribute a step by step instruction how to reproduce the problem due to <>  (containing every key press and every mouse click) how to reproduce the problem reliably.
