From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031114 Description of problem: Desktop window contents scroll/flicker up and down all by itself when the mouse pointer is in the window. Also cannot move window on desktop by clicking and dragging on title bar. Intermittent problem that seems to have gone away when I opened a new tab in mozilla. =========================================================== Strange behavior, have now seen this twice. I had mozilla running with two tabbed windows and also a gnome terminal running. I clicked in the terminal window and the text in that window began to scroll up and down all by itself rapidly. This continued as long as the mouse pointer was in the window. Moving the mouse pointer from the terminal window to the mozilla window caused the window content scrolling/flicker problem to follow the mouse to the mozilla window. I opened another gnome terminal window and it did not flicker because there was not enough content on the screen to scroll up and down. The desktop windows could be minimized and restored and the problem persisted. Problem went away when I added another tab to the mozilla window so I could access bugzilla. Now I can move the windows and the crazy window content scrolling has stopped. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1.Intermittent problem, saw it last night, shut down pc, started pc today, encountered problem again today 2. 3. Expected Results: This strange intermittent problem should not occur. Additional info: I tried to do a yum update earlier on this machine and it got hung up while installing initscripts. The window content scrolling problem follows the mouse. The window content scrolling problem only happens with windows that have more than one screen of content (windows that can be scrolled vertically). Computer was running fine, problem occurred, then problem went away, did not have to kill applications, logout or reboot. While problem was occurring I was unable to move windows around on the computer screen.

Fedora Core 1 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
