#27721 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Row actions do not hide when right clicking the title

This bug affects admin pages that display row action links with the hover effect.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open any of the following - All Posts, All Pages, Library > Media, Comments, All Users, Dashboard comments section.
  2. Right-click the title links one below the other without clicking anywhere
  3. The row action links appear on all the right clicked rows and do not go away

Found this on IE11 and FF28, I have not checked on the earlier versions. Chrome is not affected.


The /wp-admin/js/common.js file has this code that displays and hides action links.

On IE and Firefox the code inside setTimeout is not executed when focusin triggers on another row. This leaves the .visible class so the links do not hide.

27721.diff fixes the issue as described.

Still seems weird to me that the row actions stick around when the row title is still focused but the mouse is no longer hovering. That might even be expected behavior for the focused row.

The row actions are designed to appear for discoverability reasons when using keyboard navigation.

After second video I upgraded FF to 31.0, issue still remained, but patch fixed it again.

  • Milestone changed from 4.0 to Future Release

There are definitely some performance concerns with this approach, especially as this would affect every row. Let's take another look in 4.1. Punting.

Hi Jesin,
I tested it on my local instance and it works fine. Seems to be fixed.

I tested it on Windows 10 with the newest versions of IE, Firefox and Chrome.

Do you still have this issue?

Many regards,
