User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030210 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030210 When I user mozilla without a window manager, I am unable to type in any text area (URL box, text boxes etc). I first found the problem when I changed my $HOME/.vnc/xstartup to read "exec /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla &" When I started my vncserver and logged in, mozilla had started and the mouse worked but no keyboard. I then attempted to change my default shell to mozilla by changing the /etc/passwd file like this "mylogin:x:500:500::/home/mylogin:/usr/local/mozilla/mozilla". Same result, logged in, started mozilla, mouse=good, keyboard=bad. I've tested the same set up in netscape communicator 4.79 and it worked fine. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.edit /etc/passwd and change the 7th field in your login's entry to read /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla (Or where ever your startup script is located) 2.logoff 3.login and try to type in the browser Actual Results: I was unable to type in any text area in the browser Expected Results: allowed me to type in the text areas
I tested the same setup with the galeon 1.2.0 browser and it worked. Seems that mozilla is the only browser I have installed that doesn't work as the default shell.
