Build 2001060206, Linux 2.4.5 i686, RedHat 6.1, XFree86 4.0.2 Place the cursor over a link in a Mozilla window. Use keyboard navigation to select another window. Move the mouse away from where it was, but so it's still over the original Mozilla window. Use keyboard navigation to switch back to that Mozilla window. The cursor will now be the hand cursor, even if the cursor should be a crossbar/arrow/whatever, until the mouse is moved.
this sounds like a duplicate bug to me...
I think this is more toolkit, to update the cursor on a window activate. I don't think this is nearly important enough to be worth it...

This bug gives mozilla a faild in useabillity. In the dom news group is a thread: "How can i set the 'wait' cursor for the whole browser window?" follow this thread and you will see which bad konsequenzes this bug has for software development with mozilla. greetings Stephan Ps it is probalbly enough if you read the messages written on 22.03.
Sorry, ignore my last comment because bug http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=27849 reflects this bug as well. Maybe this bug can be removed? greetings Stephan
*** Bug 157402 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
The patch in bug 301408 comment 14 ought to fix this, at least on Windows and GTK2.
Well, only partly on GTK2, since NS_MOUSE_ENTER events there are quite inconsistent. (Not sure how consistent they are on windows, either.)
It works for me now. What I see instead is still Bug 301408. Can anyone confirm? Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008060906 Minefield/3.0pre
Mh, nothing. Consider the previous comment as "works on WinXP".
Fixed as of Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008061612 GranParadiso/3.0pre ID:2008061612. The cursor remains a hand cursor for an instant after switching back, but that's probably just because I have an old, slow computer.
