Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 277621
in dialog window moving focus from Button to text causes text to be highlighted
Last modified: 2009-01-12 10:16:07 EST
Description of problem:
Not sure if this is actually a library bug (or a gtk2 bug?) or a recurring
bug in various applications, but I find it annoying that in an About
dialog say if one presses the Up key with widget focus on the Ok button
the dialog text gets highlighted. Well maybe it is a feature that the
dialog text can be selected but it would be better IMHO if that could
only be done with the mouse say. Or am I totally off the mark here?
This also happens in F7 so this is not really a new regression or anything
more an RFE for change of behaviour. ICBW but did this behaviour change
sometime in the past?
You know gnome-libs is the GTK1/Gnome1 compatibility library and not something
that any current app uses, right?
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
during the development of Fedora 8. In order to refocus our efforts as
a project we are changing the version of this bug to '8'.
If this bug still exists in rawhide, please change the version back to
(If you're unable to change the bug's version, add a comment to the bug
and someone will change it for you.)
Thanks for your help and we apologize for the interruption.
The process we're following is outlined here:
We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
Just tried again in rawhide - at least it is possible to highlight
parts of About text with the mouse.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Still happens with current rawhide.
Any comment on the behaviour before I attempt to file upstream?
it's a gtk feature. Labels can be marked selectable. Moving upstream is probably right if you want to see the behavior changed.
