Description Horst H. von Brand 2008-09-14 23:14:04 EDT
Description of problem:
After running for a while, firefox did the above twice or thrice here. It happened both with the builtin touchpad and an external USB mouse, any mouse movement or click was handled as a scroll down. PgUp/PgDown had the same efect. Restarting firefox got that fixed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
After an hour or so of using firefox, sometimes.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
All graphics has been working weird of late: See 462262 for example. Also xpdf hangs suddenly, and when scrolling it sometimes updates just the top 2/3 of the page.

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Also could you run xev >xev.log 2>&1 in xterm window, reproduce and attach xev.log to this bug as well, please?

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

Problem isn't repeatable; in fact, firefox has worked OK all day. Will try to post xev output when it happens again.
Comment 5 Matěj Cepl 2008-09-16 11:58:41 EDT
OK, I will give you a month to provide me some useful information, that I would be able to reproduce it here.
Comment 6 Horst H. von Brand 2008-09-30 09:58:58 EDT
Hasn't happened again at all.
Comment 7 Matěj Cepl 2008-09-30 11:59:45 EDT
OK, closing as NOTABUG, and if that happens again, please, reopen with additional information.
