As I was filling in data in the forms manager I was tabbing to each next field. The first tab gets me there but nothing I type is inserted. The _second_ tab keeps me there and now I can insert text. This is weird and, well, wrong.
That's a problem with the editable menulist widget. Reassigning

Vicki, what Build ID are you reporting this against? Also, please provide step-by-step instructions to reproduce this problem. (It will help the bug be processed quicker.) Thanks.
Severity: major → trivial
This is in 1.0 build 2002052918 and it is NOT trivial. For anyone who has used Mac OS this is a major failing of the UI. Probably for WIndows or * nix users too, frankly. One should never need to tab _IN_ a field to get insertion to work! And I think "tab to next firelde in Forms Manager" is pretty much "step by step instructiions" don't you? But if you insist: 1) Open Preferences 2) Go to Privacy & Security 3) Go to Forms 3) Click Manage Stored Form Data 4) tab till insertion point is in First: 5) Tyr to type something; nothing happens 6) tab again, insertion point remains in First: 7) type and see text 8) tab to Middle, try to type, nothing happens 9)tab again, cursor remains in Middle 10) type and see text 11) rinse, repeat
Severity: trivial → major
please stop fighting over severity. this bug is no more than normal, i'd side w/ greg but it isn't worth my time either. macos users tend to rely on the mouse, apply designed its entire ui based on that concept. as such complaining that some rare keyboard functionality doesn't work perfectly can't be major.

I WORKED at Apple for 11 years, did you? I started in 1986... did you? Mac users rely on consistency of interface and this is a BUG. Mac users tab through fields a lot - in IE, in Netscape, in preference fields, in databases, in Excel. I'll accept normal, but THIS IS A BUG and don't you _dare_ try to tell _me_ what Mac users rely on!
Confirmed using FizzillaCFM/2002061014. Vicki, understand that marking a bug Trivial doesn't indicate that I think you're trivial, that the problem is irrelevant, or that you don't know what you're talking about. It indicates the impact the bug has on the product. Have a look at the Severity definitions. Compared to crashers and problems where the product just doesn't work as opposed to those where it works, but wrongly, something like this is, in fact, trivial. Finally, just because something is trivial doesn't mean it won't get fixed, nor does it mean it won't get fixed quickly. For what it's worth, Macs have been my machine of choice since 1987.
