Running Ubuntu 10.04 and Thunderbird 13.x
Since upgrading to the 13 series of Thunderbird I have been seeing this
strange problem. When reading newsgroup messages the pointer will
sometimes change to a hand with a document attached to it. It looks
like a drag & drop operations was triggered somehow, but when that
happens the mouse is unusable. The pointer moves but clicking or double
clicking with either button does nothing. The only solution seems to be
ctrl-alt-del and then use the keyboard to restart Ubuntu.
It seems to happen when I am clicking to open a different newsgroup.
I wonder if anyone else is seeing this?
Welcome to the fray...
[Mouse occasionally changes to drag cursor and the mouse buttons stop
I just tested with 14.0b3:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:14.0) Gecko/20120619 Thunderbird/14.0
and 'workaround' patch works like it does in SeaMonkey 2.11.2b2. You
will still get the D&D cursor when selecting a Subject. However when you
click the message Subject again the cursor will revert to normal & you
shouldn't have any further problems with it during your session.
Thanks for the heads up. It doesn't happen often and it seemed so
random I was never sure what I did to trigger it.
