mozilla hangs when dragging
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:39:03 EDT
Description of Problem:
In at least two different contexts, dragging hangs mozilla. I have to
ctl-alt-bs to kill the window system and re-login to get out of it. I cannot
get off the workspace once this freeze has happened.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
So far 100%. Haven't tried too many times for obvious reasons.
Steps to Reproduce:
There are two ways I have found:
1. select some text in a regular web page (not a text typein box) with the left
2. attempt to "select" some more text. The cursor will become an
"upper-left-corner" cursor. Keep attempting to select without pasting until the
cursor no longer returns to normal when you release the first mouse button.
3. Try to do anything else involving the mouse or keyboard (except ctl-alt-bs).
Another way is to go into the bookmark editor and drag some stuff around until
it turns into an upper-left-corner-with-a-plus cursor and doesn't let go.
The cursor remains an upper-left-corner graphic and the browser doesn't listen
to you anymore, nor does it release focus or let you go to another
I use GNOME with follow-pointer focus on an i386 7.2 system. Everything was
updated this morning.
Should be fixed in the rawhide builds.
