This has been a problem for a LONG time. it also happens in the URL bar. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.go to google 2.open another tab 3.try to type into google's textbox Actual Results: I can't fill in any values Expected Results: I should be able to fill in values

Frew, 1.2a is pretty old, would you mind trying this on a more recent build?
Linux gtk2 build ID 20030214. After fiddling around with google's home page I can't really reproduce this. Tabs are opened either by middle-clicking on a link or hitting ctrl-t. Both of these will by design take focus away from the text field, but bring the google tab to the front and clicking in the text field always let me type there again. Frew, can you reproduce this with a current version of mozilla? Can you describe your setup a bit--for example, what window manager do you use, and what's your window focus policy? Is it focus-follows-mouse, click in a window to focus? Can you provide more detailed instructions on reproducing this?
Frew, is this still an issue? Would you respond to the questions in the previous comments?
WFM in Mozilla 1.4rc3 W2K - Reporter, if you see this problem in a recent build of Mozilla, feel free to return and reopen the bug. Marking WORKSFORME
