From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc3) Gecko/20020523 BuildID: 2002052306 When opening new blank window via the pull down menu or CTRL-N sometimes I am unable to select the URL location. The URL location bar will not accept focus and the newly spawned window must be closed. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open a new blank window CTRL-n. 2. Click in URL location bar. 3. The URL location bar should not respond. Actual Results: The newly spawned window is unusable since the location bar will not accept focus and a URI cannot be entered. Expected Results: Focus should have switched to the URL location bar and a blinking cursor should have appeared allowing text to be entered. This appears to be an intermittent problem with the latest 1.0 RC3 build I downloaded.
Did you perform a clean install (uninstalling first) or install over an older build?
Reporter mailed: -- yes, I removed everything but my address book and bookmark.html file. trashed it all and then installed RC3 cleanly. -- Reporter: This wasn't exactly what i meant... i meant: did you perform an uninstall - in the installation directory where the application is? (For instance via control panel) It seems you created a new profile, but may have had an older version of mozilla itself still installed somewhere? What happens if you uninstall first, and then install?
This bug is a duplicate, but I cannot seem to hunt it down. stay tuned ;) I'll find it eventually.
I have found the bug I was looking for. bug 126843 - Occasionally unable to get Focus set to URL bar and other text fields Although I am almost certain this is a duplicate, I will someone else decide if it is indeed a dupe. The specific steps/problem you report here appears to be the same, but please let us know if it is not. --> Leaving Unconfirmed for now
This maybe a duplicate of 146604. http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=146604
2 Ryan Pertusio I'm not sure about real equivalence with bug http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126843 BeOS implementation of nsWindow::SetFocus(aRaise) was dropped on half-way. And this bug happened ther due to two different reasons: 1) Mozilla for BeOS was fallen in infinite loop on SetFocus when processed both cases for aRaise==PR_TRUE/PR_FALSE without any additional condition check 2)When focus setting was totally disabled for PR_TRUE - in some special test-builds. Though, in second case URL-bar was accessible after right-clicking on it. (Now there is patch for BeOS with fices both cases)
Err, I believe the bug I was really looking for was bug 82534 (Cannot type in URL/Address/location bar or text boxes - no caret/cursor) Even so, this bug is slightly different from bug 82534, in that this bug doesnt assume that prior Mozilla windows are minimized. This bug, however, indicates the problem can occur while a window is in focus (the ability to select File --> New --> Navigator Window) As far as I can tell, this is not a duplicate, as I thought previously. I apologize
Is this still an issue? WFM Mozilla 1.3, Windows 2000.
