Some of the buttons on my keyboard will get messed up after using mozilla. the
most common one is the tab key, after using it, when navigating forms if I click
on it to go to the next box or button or whatever it will instead switch to the
next availble open window! This is very wierd and it does not go away until i
re-boot my computer. Another effect is it causes my escape key to do the same
thing! What could mozilla be doing to screw up my keyboard mappings (or whatever
it is called). Mozilla is the only suspect as these keys are working prior to
using mozilla in all cases. Im using the July 17 build.

I have not seen this.  janc, do you see it?
csbooton, I need more info to verify this report.
- What platform are you using (win98, NT, mac?)
- You say in the report that after using Mozilla your keymappings are messed up,
in what program do you notice that they are wrong?  Navigator? Mozilla? other?
- Do you have other applications or windows open, maybe multiple windows of
- Can you reproduce this bug consistantly?

Your report seems to say this:
- Have several windows open (guessing at this one)
- Start Mozilla and access a page that contains forms.
- Use tab key to change focus from one form element to the next.
Result:  Mozilla changes windows rather than elements.
- Use esc. key
Result:  Mozilla changes windows rather than elements.

I have tried these steps on Win98, MacPPC, and NT using as a page
containing a form and can't recreate this bug.
I have not been able to reproduce this bug in the lastest builds so it looks
like whatever is cauing it has been fixed.
