Can't enter data into forms on this page
10.00 KB, application/octet-stream
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040518 Firefox/0.8.0+ Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040518 Firefox/0.8.0+ I tried to test my guestbook, but I can't enter anything into the input fields. Instead of changing the data in input fields firefox invokes the type-ahead feature. This happens only if the page, that contains the form is part of a frameset. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit page 2. click first field (Name) 3. press 'n', for example Actual Results: Type ahead feature is invoked. Expected Results: letters should be appended to input field data also tried an older Mozilla version: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040421 Same behaviour here.
Never seen this one before. Can someone make a minimal test case and attach it?

Ever confirmed: true
I don't know if it's really a minimal testsuite, but it should be simple enough to find the bug (which still appears in this testsuite). I wasn't so far able to remove another feature, so it comes down to this: XHTML with a XSLT stylesheet, one frameset with two frames.
It shouldn't require me to build with XSL to test this. Find as you type uses the DOM and layout trees, but doesn't care how the document came to be. So, the translation layer shouldn't matter. It should be possible to produce a pure html test case without the XSL.
I just tried to replace as much XML with HTML as I could. However right.xml does not seem to be replacable: when I use right.html Mozilla behaves as expected, but if I use right.xml it doesn't. Ok, or maybe I'm just too tired to write good XML/bad HTML.
I just experimented a bit with my guestbook and I found a way to enter data into my guestbook forms. Maybe this helps to find and fix this bug. Steps: 1. Open an explorer window (or any other window). 2. Visit my guestbook 3. select any textarea/text-input 4. select previously opened explorer window 5. now select any other textarea/text-input in the firefox-window 6. enter data This worked for me in some occasions. In my opinion it must be some kind of focus problem. I'm still puzzled why this only works with right.xml but not with right.html. I'm currently working on some other documents that contain forms (also XML), which showed similar problems (data could not be entered) though they had nothing to do with frames. Another strange thing is, that data, that was entered in right.xml is lost when the page is refreshed while it stays there when reloading right.html. I just tested it all with: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a2) Gecko/20040526 Firefox/0.8.0+
Summary: Can't enter data into forms → Can't enter data into forms on this page
This is happening to me on all sorts of web pages. It only happens randomly, but once it happens, I have to restart firefox to get rid of it. This should be definitely be marked blocking 1.0 as it is a totally debilitating bug if it happens to you.
hmmm, I lied. It can go away without restarting the browser becuase it just went away for me.
