User-Agent: Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040204 as soon as the flash content (using flash player 7r19, i did not test with lower versions, but assume it's all the same) got focus, keyboard shortcuts are ignore by the browser. apple-t, apple-n won't work anymore. you have to focus the adress input field to get keyboard-short cuts working again. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. goto http://www.binderlaw.ch (or any other page with flash content) 2. focus the flash content, by clicking somewhere inside the flash content. 3. try apple-T or apple-N Actual Results: the short cuts won't work. Expected Results: the short cut's should work. apple-t shoud open a new tab, apple-N should open a new window.
This is because the keyboard signals are sent to the flash applet by Mozilla, because the flash applet has focus. Marking invalid as this is the desired behavior
Alexander, why do you think that only the mozilla team is handling the flash plugin correctly in assuming that your way is the only and desired way? please explain to me, why hasn't this been the behaviour in the past releases? like mozilla 1.5? or why do other browsers like IE, Safari and Opera handle it in a way that browser short cuts still work when flash content has focus? you might want to follow this thread on the flashcoders mailing list as it grows: http://chattyfig.figleaf.com/cgi-bin/ezmlm-cgi?1:sss:103102:200402:pclapbbbckbdjkcbnndm#b and please: reconsider. cheers, phil
Well, I assume it is the correct behavior because the the flash can also either use or ignore the keyboard shortcuts. IE does the same (not that I'm using that as a reference implementation.) I may be wrong though - sorry for jumping to conclusions. Either way, desired behavior or not, changing hardware and OS to all because I see this on numerious versions of Moz on 'doze
Thanks Alexander! It might be a good idea to ask Macromedia, what their opinion on this issue is. They must have some sort of guide lines on how Browsers should implement the Flash Plug-In.
