Details

In build 2000021615 for the PC attempt to fill out bug submisiion report fails.
To reproduce simply point the browser to the url above, make selections from 
the drop down lists (this part works), then go to one of the boxes(ie summary 
or URL) and attempt to type. Nothing will be entered to these boxes on the 
form. Nothing can be typed in any fill in box. Drop down boxes work fine. This 
bug also occured in version 2000021516 but i couldn't verify til this build.
I'm not seeing the problem on WinNT. Reassigning to Steve.

I strongly suspect this is the recent menu-stealing-keyboard-focus problem I've 
been seeing.  Basically, if you switch from the browser to another window and 
then switch focus back to the browser, the menu bar seems to have focus.  You 
can tell by a grey background on one of the menu bar items.  You can click on a 
text area, but key events don't seem to get through.  If you hit ESC, the menu 
bar will give up keyboard focus and you can start typing.


                                                                             
aarons@netreliable.com, can you verify that this is what you are seeing?
