Hi Kevin, Alexander,


Please review the fix for below issue :


JIRA: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8145937


Webrev:  http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~ghb/murali/8145937/webrev.00/



Root Cause: There is a regression with r157328 (http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/157328) from 8u60, which simplified Event propagating logic in Event Dispatcher. The commit r157328 caused regressions in websites where we are not able to enter input text on Mouse over menu.
For Example:
1. http://www.emirates.com/in/english/ and mouseover "Manage". Try to enter "last name" OR "booking reference" in "find your booking". Now pop up disappears and not able to enter the text. 

2. HYPERLINK "http://www.britishairways.com/travel/home/public/en_us"www.britishairways.com/travel/home/public/en_us and mouse over "Manage My Booking". Not able to enter input in fields for "Online check-in" or "Find my booking".
Fix: Applying webkit patches http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/167689, http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/167805  and http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/167840
Verified the fix for above mentioned websites.
