LinuxWorld irony: The LinuxWorld Website does not work properly o....

Sorry for all the crossposting -- I just never know where the best placeto post stuff is, with all the near-duplicate newsgroups...

So I get RedHat's newsletter, Under the Brim, in my inbox and itmentions the LinuxWorld Expo in SF. Okay, I'd love to go, I'll check outthe website. Well, waddya know, the website's DHTML fly-out menus don'twork! They fly out, but I am not able to click on the links on the menus.

Clicking a link that has just flown out does *nothing*.

I am using Mozilla 1.4 on RHL9.

Mozilla Signature: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030701 This is a link to the example page: http://www.linuxworldexpo.com/linuxworldny03/V40/index.cvn?ID=10001 So I try Opera 7.11 and no problem, DHTML is working fine.

I guess this is a Mozilla problem, more than Linux, specifically, (thusthe mozilla ng crosspost), but since Mozilla is the default browser onRedHat, it is, in essence, a RedHat distro problem. And probably Mandrakeor any other distro that uses Moz as the default browser.

After searching Bugzilla for a bit, I found bug number 102578: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=102578 It seems to be roughly the same problem I am having with the LinuxWorldExpo site.

Why is this bug still in Mozilla??? It affects browseability on manywebsites. The worst part is that it affects even standards-compliantwebsites, as this is not a <layer> problem! Thanks...

Although, I do see your point if a truly default installation of RedHatwould prevent it ;)

09/02/2019 9:30 - <snip!><snip!> Well, I may have posted prematurely, but it *is* a problem with thedefault RedHat configuration. Thus the irony (me receiving a link to theLinuxWorld Expo in a RedHAt publication.) The problem, as it turns out, is probably Linux-related, but morespecifically is window-manager related. Apparently the window focusbehavior of my window manager (MetaCity, BTW) interferes with Mozillabeing able to grab the onClick event properly.

The problem does not occur with Mozilla on Windows, and, I have been told,will go away by using another (properly configured) window manager.
