I crack SF Gate's homepage, see a special on SF's changing skyline. I go to special page, run animations... I run the Java animation in a tab. I run another Java "drive-thru" across Bay Bridge in another browser window, the one elucidating changes to SF's skyline from Loma Prieta project. In all OTHER non-Flash tabs now, spacebar and arrow keys cease to work. Kill the animation windows, functionality restores. I took a few minutes to scroll thru some other bugs; not all 10,000 however. Forgive me if this were covered, and I didn't recognize it (descriptions can be obtuse, or rather I simply don't have the programming background to understand...). There you have it. I tried it a few times.... Eric Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Run Flash animation in a tab, then run subsequent animation(s) both in tab and other window (I recall) 2.Click on Flash animations/run Java applet 3.Go back to non-Flash tab Actual Results: Could not navigate w/ arrow keys, nor spacebar (i'm trying as we speak, w/ animation running). Clicking and dragging slider worked, as did slider arrows (i'm doing it as we speak). Expected Results: Tab window navigation functions (arrows/spacebar) as expected?
If the Flash animating somehow managed to keep the focus (despite that yous elected another tab), it's bug 78414
That seems to be what's happening. Just tried it; what 78414 says and what happens here jibe. This makes sense. I'll read the rest of 78414 and see what's up... Thanks for pointing this out..... regards, Eric Lecht
