Description Aurélien Roy 2019-09-26 14:12:32 PDT
Bug confirmed on stable releases of :
 - Safari 13.0.0 / Mojave 10.14.6
 - Safari 13.0.1 / Mojave 10.14.6

Overview :

"pointerdown" events are not fired for clicks that follow a drag&drop.

How to reproduce :

- Add an event listener to a draggable DOM element for "pointerdown" event.
- If you click on it, the event will fre.
- Drag the element and release it.
- The next time you will click on it, "pointerdown" event won't fire.
- Following clicks will work again until the next drag&drop.

This causes some commonly used JS libraries do not work propertly, for instance :

The "mousedown" and "click" events are fired as expected, odd!

We're actually dispatching a "pointermove" event instead of a "pointerdown" event because we believe the pointer is still pressed in PointerCaptureController::pointerEventForMouseEvent():

        // We're already active and getting another mousedown, this means that we should dispatch
        // a pointermove event and let the button state show the newly depressed button.
        if (type == names.mousedownEvent && capturingData.pointerIsPressed)
            return PointerEvent::create(names.pointermoveEvent, button, mouseEvent);

We must not clear the pointerIsPressed state during drag-and-drop.

Anyone knows the status of this bug? This is very alive in Safari 13.0.5

This bug is breaking compatibility to different libraries, for example https://github.com/SortableJS/Sortable/issues/1571

This issue still persist even in Safari 14 Preview
