Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040616 Firefox/0.9
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040616 Firefox/0.9

Firefox should use (I don't know about the feasibility of this) the Pango input
method system like all GNOME apps.  In other apps, a right click on an input
field brings up a menu with input methods (Cyrillic Transliterated, Vietnamese,
etc.) as well as Unicode controls.  Firefox should use this or at least have
similar functionality.


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.right click on input field
2.compare menu to GNOME menu
3.note absence of input method support

Actual Results:  
There was no input method support.

Expected Results:  
Presented me with a list of options similar to Gnome's.

It's a minor thing, but people like me who use the Transliterated Cyrillic input
method in e.g. Galeon or Epiphany often miss it sorely in firefox.

There's a lot of discussion about Pango in bug 215219 and bug 214715, although
not about the input method.

would be nice to have this in moz as well, would this be considered part of the
textbox widget? Right now if you have a hotkey for switching input methods, it
works, but having a menu would be nicer.
Summary: firefox needs input method support → firefox needs input method menu

my guess this is a dup of bug 214412 or at least depend on it
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
