Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to any site that has a TEXT field (NOT html-area) 2. Type something in the text are (preferably more than one line) 3. Now try to move your cursor up, down, or sideways using your keyboard; i.e. the four arrows (NOT the pg up, pg dn, home or end buttons) Actual Results: Either the cursor doesn't move at all and stays where it was before (up or down arrows), or the focus goes out of the text-area (left or right arrows) and when you press a key again, it starts searching the page if type-ahead-find is turned on. Expected Results: Move the cursor according to keyboard (arrow) direction in whichever direction the keys indicate.
you are not allowed to set the + flag
replying to comment 1: Ok, hopefully I am allowed to set the '?' flag (as a sidenote, if somebody is not allowed to set the + flag, bugzilla should automatically disallow it in the first place; you cannot expect everyone to know this). Also as a P.S. Just as a P.S., I have been noticing this since yesterday's Firefox build, 20050621.
Appears to WFM Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050622 Firefox/1.0+ ID:2005062205
Wasn't able to reproduce.
Hmm... I'm sorry. It's not Firefox, it's the NoScript extension paired with the latest nightlies that's causing this - http://www.noscript.net/whats. Now I don't know whether to give up the nightlies or NoScript for a while. Anyway, I guess this bug can be closed with a WFM or whatever.
Hmm, so does that make this bug invalid, worksforme, or a dupe?
It happens for me *sometimes* in Deer Park Alpha 2 too. It doesn't happen for Deer Park Alpha 1. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b3) Gecko/20050712 Firefox/1.0+ When it happens, the copy and paste function is gone too.

For me to: *Sometimes* the cursor-keys and the copy/paste-functionality is not working anymore in textareas. Have to restart Firefox (1.0.6).
I have the same problem. I have had it since 1.0.6 and I still have it now at 18.104.22.168. I having it even now as I write this. To fix it usually I don't have to restart firefox, though, I only have to focus on another windows for a few seconds. I tried everything, changing profile, deleting extensions, uninstalling and deleting everything, nothing worked.
This happens "every now and then". It may happen in the adressline as well as in textboxes within the webpage. A restart of firefox did help always up to now. This bug is really annoying as it happens unpredictably spontaneously.
I have this identical problem both at home and at work. I am running Windows XP SP2 at both places. As I am writing this bug report, I cannot use the cursor keys but have to use the mouse pointer instead. When Bugzilla is in this strange state. It seems to be a global state and appears on all open Firefox browsers until something happens, for example cutting/pasting a text into a text field. I am using a clean installation of Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20060909 Firefox/126.96.36.199. Only addon is GBookmarks (both at home and at work). Another tip is that the problem may have occurred after been using docs.google.com. Wow, now as I pasted the User Agent text above, the bug disappeared for now.
David: When you say "clean installation", do you also mean clean profile? THere could be remnants of your old profile around causing this issue. Are people seeing this using Firefox 188.8.131.52 with a clean profile? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_Manager
Whiteboard: CLOSEME - 05/30
If you're still seeing this using Firefox 184.108.40.206 with a clean profile, please file a new bug with detailed information about your setup as well as any information you can give to reproduce. Additionally, please be sure to test with the latest trunk nightly and see if this was fixed there. http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/
