Many textfields - regardless of being web forms or a mail composition field - become keyboard inactive when switching focus from window to another and back. This happens always with this version (1.6). Haven't tried 1.7b. There is also some other problems, e.g. with cursor buttons and multiple browser windows. This problem may already be in the bug database because there were few similar bugs but didn't feel like they were exactly the same bug. This bug may also be repaired because I'm using Mozilla 1.6 and don't know the situation with 1.7b. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open a webpage with a form or a mail composition window. 2. Start writing a message. 3. Alt+Tab to switch focus to another window. Alt+Tab to switch focus back. Actual Results: There is a cursor in a textfield but you can't write into it. Expected Results: You should be able to write into the text field where the cursor is.

Works for me using Firefox 0.8 on Win2k. Reporter: is this still happening to you? Maybe it's another focus related problem, like bug 124750.
