    I can’t select autocomlete dropdown (NOT address bar)with my mouse by left clickng, anyone else have this problem?

  3. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    berkut: yes, it regressed between yesterday’s builds and today’s builds. I see this in my JS console:

    Error: uncaught exception: [Exception… “Cannot modify properties of a WrappedNative” nsresult: “0x80570034 (NS_ERROR_XPC_CANT_MODIFY_PROP_ON_WN)” location: “JS frame :: chrome://global/content/bindings/autocomplete.xml :: onPopupClick :: line 604” data: no]

    Want to file a bug?

    I didn’t see an official-build thread today. Fixed by removing the link.

    I’m pretty sure djeter’s do also.

  8. Tom Graham Says:

    Can any one else not do this?

    bookmarks > have a folder of bookmarks and then right click > open in tabs – this fails for me.

    Does it work for anyone else?

    Bugzilla has problems right now : “500 Internal server error”

  10. Jean-Marc Gillet Says:

    Bugzilla came back. I could then see that Blake Ross just fixed 234660. That’s fast !

  11. Jean-Marc Gillet Says:

    “open in tabs” – right-click version – doesn’t work for me either. I think it worked before, but I never used it much so I cannot be sure.
    However “open in tabs” – pseudo-bookmark version – works. (I mean clicking “open in tabs” under the line break.)

    Odd problem with recognizing downloads when file extension is lower case persists with the OSX version; I don’t know if anyone has declared this a bug or not. Any file extension that’s lower case isn’t recognized even if the same three letters in CAPS are already listed. IF it exists (.SIT) you can allow Firefox to open the file once; then it’ll recognize it thereafter and can be set to be downloaded thereafter.

    But a “.dmg” file isn’t recognized, AND when Firefox is told to open it, it doesn’t offer any application — so can’t somehow connect “.dmg” to the filetype it does recognize (.DMG). When this happens I have to each time tell Firefox what to do with the file (download it).

    On scragz’ O1/G7/SSE build :
    Text selected anywhere + Middle click anywhere = FF complete crash

    Does this bug exist on other builds too ?

  14. Rzfpgk Says:

    I didn’t see the bug report here :

    Searched “middle click” instead of “middle-click” in BugZilla…

    Conclusion : watch your middle-click.
