#34 closed defect (fixed)

Flash 10 sometimes doesn't recognize mouse clicks

Reported by: djcaetano Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 0.4.0
Component: wrapper Version: Technology Preview 2
Severity: very low Keywords:


Every now and then I find a site that just ignores the mouse clicks when running inside eComStation's Flash 10. Just as an example, this is one of those sites: . The top menu simply ignores mouse clicks. It works on Windows' Flash 10.

I can't say that the site from the description ignores mouse clicks in the menu area -- here it removes highlighting from the previous menu item when I click a new one. But it doesn't change pages indeed (as it does under e.g. Mac OS).

This problem may be a generic version of #29. It may have something to do not with the mouse clicks themselves but with following links (= taking actions) that clicks represent -- since in a lot of cases mouse click work well (e.g. the video player controls, [X] buttons in the advertisement popups, etc.).

This defect may have something to do with Odin ticket #3.

Also, #47 can be another consequence of that.

And #57 too.

Now, after fixing directory creation, I get the following in flashlog.txt (created by the debug version of Flash) when I try to click e.g. the "Studio A" menu item:

*** Security Sandbox Violation ***
URL for window '' halted (AllowScriptAccess is 'always'):

One guess is that the security doesn't let this click/link pass through because the window name is empty (which looks weird). Probably somehow Flash can't detect the proper window name (valid values are _self, _top etc).

Did some more analysis of the Odin logs. It looks like Flash tries to check the Firefox executable when one presses a button that should open a different page but this check fails and this leads to a security sand box violation. I'm trying to understand what check is that.

Resolved the firefox executable resource problem (a series of Odin commits is to follow).

However, this didn't resolve the original problem. The only change is that the log now says 'sameDomain' instead of 'always' for AllowScriptAccess? for some reason. Will dig a bit further. I may be close.

Resolution: fixed

This works after doing #69.

i also tested the above link and it works. i had a crash when going back with the ffox back button. but can't reproduce it always.
