textbox fails to get focus
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:0.9.7) Gecko/20011221 BuildID: 2001122106 when i click a textbox with the mouse it sometimes fails to get the focus.. therefore no cursor is blinking and i can't write anything into the textfield... once this bug happens it applies to all open mozilla windows and also newly opened windows have the same bug... no matter if its the textbox of the adressbar or a textbox on the website or in messenger... you just can't get the focus to any textbox anymore... this must be dup but i can't find it.. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. browse the web 2. use more windows... 3. browse even more 4. close all windows except one 5. leave mozilla unattended for 5 mins 6. try to type something into the adress bar... it's really hard to reproduce... once I find out how to really reproducte it i'll post it... Actual Results: textboxes in whole mozilla don't get focused anymore you cant type anything into them anymore... Expected Results: focus the textboxes to make the user able to enter something into them
assigning to bryner (filing bugs like this on Asa as NEW instead of UNCONFIRMED is pretty pointless...)

sorry, that was my fault... it didn't want to open it as new... sorry
adding keyword qawanted - this bug is highly visible... there must be a dupe... I think some other bugs reported in the database about textfields and focusproblems could depend on this...
Is this still happening? I've never run into this bug.
Yes, it happens a lot even with 0.9.8 (Linux, Icewm), but I can't find a way to reproduce it reliably. I will try to find one in the weekend.
Reporter: Is the problem still reproducable with a recent nightly build? Thanks
It may have something with race conditions, because I often get it while browsing (even as of 1.0rc1), and it seems to occur more often with many "open link in new window", but never experienced it when trying to do something reproducable. :( The first click doesn't seem to have any effect, I have to click again in the URL bar, to be able to type.
Harald: do you only see this after not using Mozilla for a while?
isn't this a dupe of bug 82534 ?
Andrew: no, this may be wrong... it's hard to reproduce... It just happens sometimes! Well meanwhile I am using Linux and it doesn't happen with any Linux build I am using... But it still happens very often with RC1 using Windows... Maybe this is a Windows*-Only problem?
email@example.com: sorry it took me that long to answer - Yeah it's still very reproduceable using Windows... I never saw that happen on Linux though.
