User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-DE; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050719 Red Hat/1.0.6-1.4.1 Firefox/1.0.6
Description of problem:
Using Domino WebAccess 6.5.4 the Mozilla window resizes -- it's scaling down, not minimizing -- as soon as I try to open the context menu (click on right mouse button, e.g. over a mail in my inbox).
By default, the window size should keep its original size.
I made regression tests with:
- Mozilla 1.7.12 (from Red Hat, RHEL 4 Desktop): Window resizes
- Mozilla 1.7.10 (from mozilla.org): Window keeps original size
- Mozilla 1.4.1 (from mozilla.org): Window keeps original size
The bug can be reproduced with Domino WebAccess 6.5.1 , too.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a Domino WebAccess 6.5.(1/4) mail inbox in Mozilla 1.7.(10/12)
2. Move mouse over a mail or folder entry.
3. Press right mouse button to open the context menu of Domino WebAccess.
Actual Results: Mozilla window resizes automatically. The resulting window is to small for further efficient working.
Expected Results: The Mozilla window has to keep its original size.
As IBM affirms and my regression test show, the resizing is not initiated by Domino WebAccess.
Since this bugzilla report was filed, we have seriously upgraded Gecko-related

problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their
Please, confirm to us that this bug is reproducible on the latest upgrade of the
supported distribution (that's RHEL, or Fedora 7, 8, and Rawhide).

30 days, the bug will be closed as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.

we are sorry, if this bug should not be incldued.]
The bug is still reproduceable wit RHEL5/Firefox: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux
i686; de; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20071122 Red Hat/188.8.131.52-7.el5 Firefox/184.108.40.206.
Reporter, could you still reproduce it with the FF3.0?
Yes, the effect can still be reproduced with Firefox 3.0.4-1.el5 when using Domino WebAccess (DWA) 6.5.4.
But DWA 6.5.4 does not work properly with Firefox 3.X as DWA 6.5.4 uses features, that where removed from Firefox 3.x (and the lastest releases of Firefox 1.5). With DWA 8.X and Firefox 3.X (constellation supported by IBM) this issue can no longer be reproduced (IBM seems to have changed something when opening context menu).
Then it sounds like this is really a bug in DWA, and FF is just doing what DWA is telling it to do.
Do either of the following preferences (in about:config) help?
dom.event.contextmenu.enabled = false
dom.disable_window_move_resize = true
Unless anyone can reply to my query in comment 6 and can show this to be a bug in Firefox, I feel this should be closed as NOTABUG, because I believe this to be a Domino Web Access bug, especially since it works in newer versions (8.x) of DWA, but not in older versions.
