Ran into this one today, in somewhat unusual circumstances: I had a hover style where buttons inside a table row only appeared when the mouse was over the row, and if you clicked on one of the buttons but moved the mouse into another row before releasing the mouse button, the previous row would stay highlighted.
The authoritative writeup of the bug, and most others, refer to the problem happening with dynamically-displayed submenus, but make little mention of my particular problem. There was some hope that triggering
hasLayout would fix the problem, as it’s the closest thing we have to a magic bullet, but it (shocker!) didn’t work for me.
:hover pseudoclass. So much for IE7 implementing
:hover on non-anchor elements. Sigh.
