Ah, I just had it happen again. It's a focus issue, apparently. Mozilla shows a cursor in the location bar, but arrow up and down still scrolls the page. Switching to a different tab actually has the same problem there, but creating a new tab does fix it. Still don't have steps to reproduce. Has anyone else experienced this? If it's not unique to my system, I think this should probably block 1.8b1

Ever confirmed: true
Summary: Location bar occasionally stops accepting input → Location bar occasionally stops accepting input - focus remains in page.
Just had this happen again while ctrl-clicking open a lot of tabs for downloading old mozilla nightlies from the ftp site. Yet try as I might, I can't find steps to reliably reproduce from that. I'm going to pick a mozilla build from the the middle of the regression window and use that as my main mozilla browser for a day to at least in that way try and narrow the window. Aaron: if you happen to have an idea of any changes potentially being responsible for this and can thus direct me as to what timeframe to focus on, that would be helpful. For now I'll try 20050124, simply because that's the oldest build on the ftp server.
Sander, still happens? (I've never seen it) have you tried a trunk build?
Yes, it still happens (I'm tracking branch at the moment, but am pretty certain I saw it when I last tested a trunk build a week or two ago as well). Hitting F6 moves focus to the location bar for real, and I do that nearly instinctively now, so it's less of an issue for me, but annoying nonetheless.
I've had this happen a couple or three times running SM 1.1a or 1.1b nightlies. I think the last one may have actually been with the official SM 1.1b release. Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061102 SeaMonkey/1.1b The times I've had it occur, I was on a page with form fields. I could click around between the fields and Location field and the fields would seem to get focus (the vertical bar cursor would move to the field), but keyboard input would not be accepted. I got unstuck by clicking on the desktop, then back into SM. No idea how to reproduce. :( Changed OS & Hardware to ALL since this is cross-platform. Ooopsie, not empowerd enough to do that.
It is especially entertaining to hit CTRL-L, happily *start* entering text, then look up and notice only some URL content has been accepted by the location bar but somewhere along the line a page element has stolen focus
Can you reproduce with SeaMonkey v1.1.9 ?

I still see it from time to time in 1.1.9.
Haven't seen anything like this is in a long time. (Heck, I barely remember this bug.) I'm guessing it went away with SM 2.0? Maybe it's time to resolve it as WFM? Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:5.0) Gecko/20110704 Firefox/5.0 SeaMonkey/2.2
Agreed with WFM.

Probably fixed by the new focus manager code.
