Summary: [PP] URL text field not updated by Back/Forward arrows, Link walker, etc. → [PP] URL text field not updated by Back/Forward arrows, links, Link walker, etc.
By the way, the content does appear to be somehow updated, just not visually. Here's an example of what I mean: 1. Go to www.yahoo.com 2. Click on the "What's New" link at the top 3. In the URL field, select the text "yahoo" as part of the domain name, and type in "netscape" ---> As soon as you type a character into the URL field, the actual URL (rather than the one that we typed in earlier) will appear in the URL field. You can also get the same results in some pages by resizing the window. <--
** Note that this bug doesn't occur on Linux, either; just Mac OS. Yum. (tm)

Digging with the debugger, the new text is being correctly set, just the widget isn't redrawn after the text changes. Windowshading the window will force a redraw that causes it to display correctly. Viewer is doing the right thing, but the redraw just isn't happening.
fix in hand, waiting for tree to open.

added a call to invalidate the widget on SetText()
Re-opening after checking 1.13.99 Mac builds. Specifically: - launched 1.13.99 build - selected contents of URL field - replaced with 'www.macintouch.com' - hit return - Pressed the "Back" button. Now, the URL text field was simply left blank, including after resizing the window. Ditto after going forward. Same behavior upon clicking on a web page's link. Good luck. ;)
Clearing Fixed resolution.

This should really be fixed now.
<Will check today's builds...>
Verified fixed in 1.14.99 build. (Haven't specifically done a full set of verifications; just haven't seen any problems after a few hours of regular use.) Thanks, Mike!
