User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8 When using "open in tabs" to open a few web pages at a time from a bookmark folder, the page opened in the first tab has text focus problems. I use https://login.yahoo.com/config/login?.done=http://mail.yahoo.com/ as my first bookmark, which opens in the first tab. Sometimes when I "open in tabs" the yahoo page comes up as always, the cursor is blinking in the "username" textbox, but typing doesn't cause any letters to show up. This behavior ALWAYS happens if the first act after starting the browser is to "open in tabs". pressing tab once makes focus go to the url bar pressing tab again makes focus go (elsewhere?) pressing tab again focuses on the whole web page of the first tab pressing tab again goes to the password text box (second text box) then, pressing shift-tab goes back to the username text box. (that was originally skipped in the tab sequence) I see this behavior in Firefox 0.8, and also in the nightly firefox build 20040503 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start Firefox 2. click "open in tabs" on a bookmark folder that uses the following url as the first bookmark: https://login.yahoo.com/config/login?.done=http://mail.yahoo.com/ 3. observe the cursor blinking in the entry box for 'username' 4. Try typing in a username Actual Results: No text is typed, despite the cursor still blinking in the username text box Expected Results: put letters from keystrokes into the username field Orig. theme. Happens both on WinXP and Win2000 Both with Firefox 0.8 and with Firefox 0.8+ 20040503
I think this is a dup of bug 241625, although that one doesn't involve a textbox getting focus.
Actually, after looking, I'm pretty sure this is a dupe of bug 124750. One of my URLs that I "open in tabs" is gmail.com.
Likely Gmail stealing focus from the yahoo textbox. When you type with the yahoo page in view, and then switch to the google tab, do you see the text you were typing at the yahoo page in that the google username box? If so, this is in fact a dupe of bug 124750.
Yes, in fact that does happen. Marking as duplicate. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 124750 ***
