Description Rodd Clarkson 2005-04-22 03:20:36 UTC
Description of problem: The Mouse Preferences in GNOME include a 'Highlight the pointer when you press CTRL' option that when enabled stops Firefox from resizing text using CTRL+scrollwheel. CTRL+ [+-] still work. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): firefox-1.0.3-2 How reproducible: Very Steps to Reproduce: NOTE: Obviously, you'll need a mouse with a functioning scrollwheel to replicate the following steps. 1.Open Desktop > Preferences > Mouse 2.Click the Cursors Tab and make sure that the "Highlight the pointer..." option isn't checked. 3.Open Firefox and load a page with text in it (for example http://log.ometer.com/2005-04.html). 4. Holding down CTRL while rolling the scroll wheel should resize the text on the page. 5. Check the "Highlight the pointer..." option 6. Holding down CTRL while rolling the scroll wheel no longer resizes the text on the page. Expected results: Text should resize using the scrollwheel when the "Highlight the pointer..." option is checked. Additional info: This is also true when using the 'scrollwheel' on the side of the mouse pad if using the synaptics driver. I've filed this bug against firfox becuase so far this is the only thing I've noticed not working which the "Highlight the pointer..." option is checked.

it also interferes in other keys - when I enable ctrl highlighting, multimedia keys such as "E-mail", "Web browser" and "Volume" also don't work. It is, thus, not a firefox bug. I'm not sure whose fault this is, but it's definitely not a firefox bug and should be changed to reflect that. I'm using FC4 final with all updated packages.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd. Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and either update the target product or close it ? Thanks.
Comment 3 Rodd Clarkson 2007-02-26 23:22:16 UTC
This is still an issue in FC6. Interestingly, with compiz running, there seem to be some other issues too. When I tried to resize the fonts using CTRL+[+|-] firefow locked up, with the CPU at 100%. This needs more investigation.
Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2007-04-06 15:24:55 UTC
Fedora Core 3 and Fedora Core 4 are no longer supported. If you could retest this issue on a current release or on the latest development / test version, we would appreciate that. Otherwise, this bug will be marked as CANTFIX one month from now. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
Comment 5 Matthew Miller 2007-04-06 15:44:42 UTC
Moving to FC6 as per comment #3. However, I think this is probably an issue best addressed in GNOME upstream.
Comment 6 Rodd Clarkson 2007-04-10 01:41:45 UTC
This is also a problem in rawhide
Comment 7 Matěj Cepl 2007-12-10 09:22:20 UTC
Fedora Core 6 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora 7, 8, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX. Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter. [This is mass-filed message to all open Fedora Core 6 bugs related to Xorg or Gecko. If you see any other reason, why this bug shouldn't be closed, please, comment on it here.]
Comment 8 Rodd Clarkson 2007-12-12 20:28:36 UTC
I can't find this option in the Mouse configuration under f8. I guess this bug could be closed.
