Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 462265
firefox reacts to any mouse movement with "scroll down"
Last modified: 2008-09-30 11:59:45 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):
After an hour or so of using firefox, sometimes.
Steps to Reproduce:
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.

Problem isn't repeatable; in fact, firefox has worked OK all day. Will try to post xev output when it happens again.
OK, I will give you a month to provide me some useful information, that I would be able to reproduce it here.
Hasn't happened again at all.
OK, closing as NOTABUG, and if that happens again, please, reopen with additional information.
