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.
[Fiddling bits after talking with Asa]
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).
Created attachment 61340 [details] [diff] [review] proposed patch 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 working.
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)
