Description David Le Sage 2011-02-16 05:44:04 UTC
Description of problem:
I have just been testing the F15 Alpha TC2 live CD:


and I found that you cannot dismiss the Firefox "About" dialogue.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Firefox 4 Beta 11 Pre

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Using the live CD, launch Firefox from the GNOME Shell.
2. Help->About

Actual results:
No way to dismiss the "About" dialogue.  There is no exit button in window manager for that dialogue and no "Okay" or "Cancel" button.

Also it is still present on screen, even after I exit Firefox itself.

Expected results:
There should be a way to dismiss the "About" box.

Additional info:

pressing the 'esc' key closes it. However, you're right that it should have some kind of chrome to indicate how to get rid of it.

Comment 2 David Le Sage 2011-02-16 06:37:21 UTC
Thanks for the rapid response, Adam.  I added my test info to the Alpha TC 2 Wiki page as well - hope I wasn't premature about it and that I used your template correctly.

Still exists in FF 5.0
