User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040803 Firefox/0.9.3 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040803 Firefox/0.9.3 The following is the scenario, I have opened two tabs, in tab-1 i type the yahoo-url and in the mean time the page comes, I put ctrl-tab and go to the next tab and type hotmail-url, now i go backto tab-1 and give my userid in first textfield and next i go to the second textfield and type the password. My password's length is 7 characters, i see only 3 * in the password entry textfield and the focus is not there but i have typed the whole password. What happens is that, whatever i type as password goes to the userid field in tab-2. Iam not sure whether it is a bug or an intended behaviour. If the focus will go to the next tab's form field, since it got the response back completely, the screen (that is the tab i am viewing) must also change and show me the tab where iam presently located. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open Tab-1 and type http://mail.yahoo.com/ 2.Open Tab-2 and type http://gmail.google.com/ 3.(now you r in tab-2) Press CTRL-Shift-tab 4.type userid in the userid column provided 5.type passwor in the password column provided Actual Results: I should be able to type both the userid and password and the focus must wait at the end of the password entry field Expected Results: Focus is lost while typing the password or sometimes if the webpage at the next tab comes quickly, focus at the time of typing the userid itself. If this is a way of informing the user that the page in the next tab got response completely, you give some popup or completely take me to that tab. But now, the focus goes to the second tab and what i am seeing is tab-1. And i think that i am in screen1 and type information pertaining to screen-1 but all goes to screen-2. Above all, Thanks to Mozilla you are doing a great job.
I have something similar happening with the same build of Firefox (both linux and Windows). I have my homepage set to: http://slashdot.org|http://gmail.google.com so it will open up 2 tabs when I open the browser up. Slashdot is the main tab that is openned, and it is the one that has focus. Gmail tends to load after slashdot does, and I think this causes the problem. I have keyboard shortcuts enables on Gmail. After Gmail has loaded, even though the tab it is in isn't the focused tab, it seems to have the focus of the keyboard. If I type something like "/mozilla" meaning to search Slashdot for the word "mozilla", the gmail page grabs all of the input.
This seems a dupe of the bug 124750.
I have also experienced a problem like this. 1. Open up tab and go to gmail home page 2. While gmail loads I open a second tab (ctr-t) 3. In second tab I begin to type a url for that tab but this doesn't work 4. If I return to the first tab (gmail inbox) what I typed on the second tab has gone to this page and invoked hotkey features for gmail. The hotkey issue is irrelevant (though it makes this bug annoying and possibly dangerous - think if I were to hit a ctr key that causes a deletion of an important email). If the first tab was just some text box then the same thing would happen with text typed on the second tab going to the first. Basically, it appears focus does not shift from first to the second tab. This may be related to the first tab loading or something else.
