Volume toggle behavior makes it easy to turn on mute by accident


Description Kuba Orlik 2019-12-02 20:34:59 CET

a screencap where the issue is reproduced

It's a little hard to describe, but here we go. 

Steps to reproduce:

1. open the pulseaudio plugin
2. grab the volume slider by clicking and holding the left mouse button 
3. move the cursor to the right
4. release the left mouse button

Please take a look at the attached video. 

When raising the volume by grabbing the volume slider, it's very easy to move the cursor so hard to the left that when the left mouse button is released, it triggers a click on the "mute" toggle, disabling the sound altogether - quite the opposite of what I meant to achieve.

This happens to me multiple times per week.

The issue is caused by the fact that the toggle responds to the release of the mouse button even if the button press started on a totally different widget altogether. In my opinion that should not be the case.
