    annoying firefox problem is back

    call it text highlighting or something.
    it happens when you rest your cursor on a forum topic
    a description appears
    you scroll the middle mouse wheel and it turns a blank grey

    Re: annoying firefox problem is back

    it had gone away and then I noticed yesterday after some updates it was back.
    it only shows up if you scroll the center mouse wheel while the yellow text highlight is showing

    Go to "http://ubuntuforums.org", and click on "New posts". Put the mouse over
    the title of any thread. The yellow box showing the resume of the thread
    appears, as shown in the first part of the screenshot.

    Then scroll the page WITH THE MOUSE WHEEL (moving the mouse makes
    the yellow box disapear). The yellow box should disapear and the background
    page be restored, but we actually get a grey box, as shown in the
    second screenshot.
    you can screen capture this by setting a delay capture
