Reproducible: ALWAYS To reproduce: 1. Build and run webclient on Solaris. 2. Click in the URL text field and start typing, any text will do. 3. While typing, move the mouse into the web page area. 4. You'll find that the focus is stolen from the text field. This is a major usability problem.
Just for kicks, adding the HELP_WANTED status word.

I have a simpler wrapper that wraps IE and an url text field has the same problem. I don't think this is limited to mozilla, but rather a JTextField focus bug. The problem seem to be that even if the text field gets events, eg. a mouse click to bring focus back to it, one has to select some other java component first. Simply using a heavyweight TextField instead of a lightweight JTextField makes the problem go away. I hope that the new focus manager in jdk1.4 will solve this problem.
In Webclient we are using a heavyweight AWT component TextField and not the Swing JTextField. We are seeing the problem because of the way Motif (peer components on Solaris for Java AWT) interacts with the Gtk components in Mozilla.
