Firefox fails to send WM_SETFOCUS to focused flash immediately after activation


(Core :: Plug-ins, defect, P3)




Tracking Status
firefox57 --- affected


(Reporter: jimm, Unassigned)



Noticed this in bug 1360666 - Flash expects a WM_SETFOCUS message otherwise it can act in odd ways. For example the flash based text input in bug 1360666 accepts keyboard input but fails to display a blinking text cursor.

Hi Jim,

you marked bug1396173 as duplicate to this bug 1360666.

may be the root cause is the same, but the problem is quite different, the keyboard is completely disabled (not focused in the entire Firefox browser).

This is impacting all of our users, and they are switching to Google Chrome... 

Any more feedback when this issue can be fixed, and in which release?
