Description Neville English 2006-04-22 19:01:22 UTC
Firefox 1.0.7 under XP.  (Also Netscape 7.1/Mozilla 5.0, but MSIE is ok.) 
English Wikipedia.  Edit screen.  'Classic' skin.  

Only vaguely similar bug was 2057.  Brion reports some recent changes to the
edit screen page on the Village pump (technical) as of 17APR06, but I read these
as relating to a different set of buttons.  

When clicking the 'Save page' or 'Show preview' buttons, the screen scrolls up
to leave the mouse pointer not sitting on the button.  Second clicks do not
exhibit the effect.  Clicking with the pointer at the very top of the button
leaves the pointer still over the button, so that the action is executed on
releasing the button.  ctrl+shift+R has been tried, to no effect.

First, update your FireFox here:
Second, do you have any extra javascript in use?
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-04-22 19:34:57 UTC
Cannot reproduce with Firefox on Mac OS X, 1.0.8 on Ubuntu Linux,
or on Windows XP SP 2.
Comment 3 Daniel Kinzler 2006-04-22 19:37:56 UTC
I can confirm the problem with FF 1.0/Linux - but on many sites, including
bugzilla. Not sure when it happens, but it seems to be an FF bug.
Comment 4 William Bumgarner (en:Zsinj) 2006-04-22 19:41:24 UTC
I agree with Daniel Kinzler. This WFM on on WinXP SP2
Comment 5 Neville English 2006-04-23 00:11:21 UTC
Updated Firefox to as recommended.  This fixes the problem.  Thanks.
