Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 168633
Menus flicker and lose selection
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:13 EST
Description of problem:
When selecting from a [bookmarks] menu, mouse-over ceases selecting.
When cursor moves for one pixel, selection highlight appears and
disappears immediately. Next level menus do not appear. Moving more
than one pixel causes hideous flickering of highlights.
A click continues to chose submenus and menu items normally.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100%. But see notes!
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Unknown. Use the browser for extended periods of time.
Hideous flicker of highlight. Button-up does not chose menus.
Normal operation of menus.
This is impossible to see on a fresh browser. However, it happens
inevitably if the browser is used for a couple of hours. 100%.
Once it starts happening, it continues until the browser quits.
This happens on both my laptops, 1.6GHz and 500MHz.
It may only happen to Bookmarks. I basically never use other menus.
Will verify in a couple of hours... :-)
Also, this started happening when Deer Park landed in Rawhide.
The old Firefox was not affected. I waited through a couple of
Deer Park rebuilds before filing. It seemed inconceivable that
a bug of this magnitude may pass unnoticed.
I have verified that regular menus are affected, so it's not just bookmarks.
i get this too!
Still there with firefox-1.5-0.5.0.rc1. I cannot believe that nobody
sees this outside of Fedora, but apparently not?
This seems to be gone in firefox-1.5-1.
