Firefox forgets onmouseout event

Hi there,

I am writing a page showing thumbnail images: Whenever the user hoovers
the mouse over an image, after some delay it should be replaced with the
full image displayed in different (bigger) size. The thumbnail should be
displayed again as soon as the mouse leaves the image area.

Right, all you need is onmouseover, onmouseout and setTimeout(). Set the
image to absolute positioning to take it out of the normal page flow.
Then have it resized and repositioned as you like.

Sounds easy, so here is the testpage:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=163278

From the fact that the page is hosted on bugzilla, you can conclude
that it works on Internet Explorer but not on Firefox. :-/

Try for yourself:
- "Fullscreen" your browser window.
- Open the page
- Move the mouse over the little icon at the bottem left corner
- Wait a few seconds
- If the page reflows, increase the browser window size or decrease font
size (sorry, there's just too much text on the page), reload and try again.
- Move the mouse off the icon.
- Check the Text in the debug log (last message is top). It sould tell
you that "mouseOver" and "mouseOut" have occured. But the latter is missing.

Im seeking help (confirmation, workarounds, suggestions,...) on this
bug# 265051

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=265051

Comment on bugzilla are welcome, too.

Cheers

You have to understand that with Mozilla development once a branch has
been created development continues on the trunk and the branch usually
gets only fixes for very serious stuff like crashes or security issues.
So testing with Firefox 1.0.x or Mozilla 1.7.x is of course possible but
if you want to have bugs fixed then first demonstrate that they exist on
the trunk, so grab a nightly trunk build from
<http://www.mozilla.org/developer/> and test with that.

I just downloaded the nightly build
firefox-1.6a1.en-US.linux-i686.tar.gz containing Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U;
Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20050829 Firefox/1.6a1

and checked the testcase. Wow, the bug has gone!

Thanks for the hint. I marked it as fixed.

Cheers
Daniel
