"Adding disabled attributes to <BUTTON> elements in Safari does not have the desired effect.

Disabled buttons with text content are not greyed out and still respond visually to clicks (albeit without generating any onclick events).

In <BUTTON> elements with image content, the addition of a disabled atribute has no effect whatsoever.

Workaround is included
Reported by: Philip Ronan."

This should be P1 imho, as it allows users to do things the webdesigner didn't want them to be able to.
Comment 2 Dave Hyatt 2006-06-24 14:37:40 PDT
P1 = crashes and regressions.
Comment 3 Joost de Valk (AlthA) 2006-06-24 14:52:33 PDT
Hyatt: I strongly disagree and would like to discuss this with you.

Website compatibility problems should almost never be P1 bugs; exceptions would be problems that affect very important and prominent websites or things that cause security problems.

And I agree this bug does not deserve a P1.

But I guess we won't resolve this by discussing it in a bug report. And this bug has a fix already, so it doesn't matter too much!
