Package: chromium
Version: 57.0.2987.98-1~deb8u1
Severity: important
Tags: upstream patch

Dear Maintainer,

in Chromium, CSS dropdown menus do not work: They drop down/open correctly;
but clicking on a menu-item only closes the menu but does not start the
click-action (e.g. activate the link, open the linked page).

There is already a bugreport on the Chromium-bugtracker, but since this
bug now exists for several versions without any fix, I recommend to add
a workaround to the Debian-package.

Chromium versions: 57 and several previous versions (maybe since 43);
                   probably also newer versions, but I did not test these.

- Start Chromium with: chromium --disable-features=SendMouseLeaveEvents


- add a file to /etc/chromium.d/, e.g.:

  with the contens:

  # workaround for Chromium bugs #701637 and #713746
  export CHROMIUM_FLAGS="$CHROMIUM_FLAGS --disable-features=SendMouseLeaveEvents"

-- System Information:
Debian Release: 8.8
Architecture: amd64 (x86_64)
-------------- next part --------------
# workaround for Chromium bugs #701637 and #713746
export CHROMIUM_FLAGS="$CHROMIUM_FLAGS --disable-features=SendMouseLeaveEvents"
