The cursor fails to accept keyboard input on a http webpage form or when trying to enter a url in the url bar of the mozilla browser. I've found out that if i mearly do Edit > Preferences > Advanced > and toggle "Enable Java" to either on or off, the browser/webpage will start to allow cursor/keyboard input again. (no need to "reload page" either) this bug has probabely already been submitted but the query page for bugzilla is quite trivial. appear you must "live" on bugzilla to actuall understand it (lol).
Which build ID are you seeing this with? (Please always include build ID in bug-reports) Also: Which Window Manager are you using? Sounds like a "missing focus" bug. I've seen something similar on occation and used to "solve" it by pasting into the "numb" text field. That usually did the trick.

I mearly download the srpm from mandrake cooker's site. I've seen this bug consistantly for the past year and have also installed Redhat builds. Currently installed is mozilla-0.9.9-2mdk Maybe this'll help, ...clicked help &... Mozilla 0.9.9 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/00200203 I use Enlightenment. nope. i haven't used another windowmanager. i'll try to do so to see if that eleviates the bug. Sometimes, when i goto a form webpage, just selecting an item in a drop-down list provokes this bug and all input via keyboard is stopped for ~3 minutes, but i haven't seen this yet in this current build of mozilla. I've got your email highlighted and will post any additional info i get, plus webpage urls. One thing i do realize, is that Mandrake/Redhat could be adding patches which which may cause this bug! So, i'd have to download a tarball build and install locally to troubleshoot i guess, unless you already know that this bug is consistant with the main mozilla builds.
Strange. "0203" would indicate a build from early February, but 0.9.9 was released in the middle March - over a month later. Do you have multiple mozilla installations there?
ok. confirm this as "just a loss of the mouse focus" even just clicking on the edit > preferences (to re-focus teh mouse/cursor to another point) resolves this problem. $ rpm -qa |grep enlight enlightenment-conf-0.15-18mdk enlightenment-0.16.5-11mdk soo....a X/Desktop issue?
Since typing works OK after giving a window/form focus, this is either a duplicate of one of the 360 other currenly open focus bugs - or dup of one of the even more numerous fixed ones. I can't reporduce at will on a day old Linux CVS build. Which doesn't mean there aren't issues. I didn't find specific focus bugs related to E. I know FWM has a few. If you can test a fresh build, from the stabilizing RC1-candidate branch if you prefer, that would be fine.
yup. i'll check-up with a nightly build or something. yup. just loose focus mainly on when filling in forms (online orders, etc)...drop-down selection menus sometimes provoke the lose of focus. ... i wouldn't consider this critical to somebody acustomed with this bug and knows the work-around...only to new or non-computer literate users would pull-out their hair over it.
The cursor is also losing focus in rc1 also. Again, the bug seems minor once you know how to resolve it, but with a new user, their only recourse is to restart mozilla.

OJI or settings in prefs seem to be a red herring here. It sounds like a plain focus issue. Toggling anything would likely help. Reporter: Which themes do you have installed? Does this bug also happen with a new profile?

I'm going to resolve this. The reporter has never responded to comment #10, and this appears to be Yet Another loss-of-focus issue.
