I am resolving bug #106022 as fixed but I am opening this bug to further track
down why this became a problem and why it doesn't fix the problem on 8.5.

Frank or Naoki:  can you point me to a simple editor that implements TSM 1.5
which I could test on 8.6?
I'm the only one I know of using 8.5.1 (in-house) - but that won't be for long
now since I'll have to upgrade :-(
I also use 8.5 and have a machine available if someone needs to test on it. The
latest 0.9.6 branch builds seem to be totally hosed for me. I can't get any
keyboard input in mozilla and while mozilla is open this is a problem for all my
other apps. Not sure if this a seperate bug or not.

Severity: normal → blocker
Keywords: mozilla0.9.7
OS: Mac System 8.6 → Mac System 8.5
I'm on Mac OS 8.5.1 and I also can't get any keyboard input through Mozilla. No
matter what I do, I am always unable to type or use any keyboard shortcut. When
Mozilla is running in the background, other applications are unaffected. I am
using Build ID: 2001112011 on a beige G3/266 with an ADB keyboard and Logitech
USB mouse (only USB device).
Attached patch proposed patchSplinter Review
Since I don't have 8.5, I am proposing this patch which we can back out if
there are still problems.  In effect, this will back out ftang's changes
completely for those running any OS below 9.0.

I can test this on  8.5 first thing in the morning.  I'll  verify here  if it's
I can type on today's (2001121308) mozilla mac build on OS 8.5 :-D
This bug is now to cover investigation on why this was a problem and how we can
enable unicode typing on Mac OS 8.5.x and 8.6.x.

not clear this is a high priority; let's change the milestone and see what the
reaction is ;-)

resolving this as wontfix since there are no plans to continue supporting MacOS
8.x (that I am aware of)
