Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.3.1) Gecko/2003042512

Unable to enter, select, or delete text in the editable text fields of the
Mozilla's (browser, communicator, bookmark manager, etc) dialog windows and
preference panes. Same for the URL bar. Editable text fields on web pages are
not rendered as such. Password manager will insert information in the proper
area, where the text field is supposed to be. Tab focus is never given to
editable text fields. Javascript links will not function. Javascript based
pulldown menus are rendered as text consisting of possible selections.
Javascript function calls broken. Same problem occurs in Mozilla 1.4rc1 for MacOS X.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Occurs with basic installation of Mozilla
2. Persists with the addition of extensions and functionality.
3.



Expected Results:  
Tab focus should be given to editable text fields, minimumally. Text fields in
the Mozilla's dialog windows and preference panels should be editable and
clickable. JavaScript should function per accepted standards.

These errors do not result in an application crash. These core properties are
non-functional.

I also saw this behaviour in:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030508
Please try it again with an new, additional created test profile.

With fresh install and new profile, confirming the behavior in

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.3.1) Gecko/20030425

With fresh install and new profile, the editable text fields problem seems to
have disappeared. It has not re-occured in my testing so far. However, the
incorrect rendering of JavaScript on pages persists. I'm going back to take a
look at whether the text field problem was created by an updated chatzilla or
venkman install.

Editable text field problem has not re-appeared. I'm currently running 1.4rc in
Mac OS X. I have, however, tracked down the problem with javascript being
rendered incorrectly. I've been able to reproduce the problem several times, and
with clean and modified versions of 1.4rc. Using Preferential, I had set the
following preference

user_pref("nglayout.debug.enable_xbl_forms", true);

When set to false, I can reload the page and it's rendered correctly. For the
record, current browser is

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624

similar to bug 208020
"Doctor, it hurts when I enable a debug pref."
"Then don't do that!"
