Hi,

There is a strange case with /xform:trigger/ element inside
/xform:repeat/. When attribute /appearance/ is set to /minimal/ and also
css rule is written with /float: left/ there is no way, using the
trigger, to change xf-repeat-index.

In older version of the Xforms plug-in, for example 0.8.6ff3, such
construction has just worked fine. Now, one only way, to use trigger to
change index is to use /display: //inline-block/ instead /float: left./
Of course, there is a lot more way do to this, using other controls with
different action but I have only /xform:output/ and /xform:triggers/ in
this case.
/
/Is there something I don't understand with this or is just a bug?

By the way, when we can expect the official release of the Xforms
plug-in for FF4, 0.8.8?

I would suggest trying to use css backgrounds or borders in different 
colors around the elements in question to try to debug what is 
happening.  You probably have something overlapping the button so that 
it can't be clicked.  If it used to work and doesn't anymore, I'm 
guessing that it was a change in Firefox that is causing this behavior. 
  There hasn't been a ton of Mozilla xforms activity to account for it.

If you find that it is a bug (something overlapping that shouldn't be, 
for example), I'd suggest simplifying the testcase so that XForms isn't 
in the equation and then submitting a bug to Firefox.  Our UI is just 
HTML so if there is a bug affecting us, it'll affect HTML.  But the 
Firefox folks will worry about a bug affecting HTML a lot more :-)

Hope that this helps,
--Aaron
