steps to reproduce: 1. Choose File | Open Web Location 2. Give focus to address bar text area. 3. Hit ctrl-c. Comments: Occurs in window/instance from which Open Web Location was raised. Other mozilla instances are not affected. Does not occur when ctrl-l is used to open a location. It is not necessary to browse to any particular location. about:blank is fine. Reproducibility: always.
I cannot reproduce this with either 2000032306 win98 (beta1), or 2000032309 win98 (trunk). Can you note what build you are using, confirm that this was on win95, and elaborate on the steps to reproduce. Thanks.
Does not occur with find, about dialogs. Build ID: 2000032308 Platform: Win95 OSR2 Processor: PentiumII Earlier build (a 20000322xx) exhibited the same. I just ctrl-n opened a new window, clicked File | Open Web Location. Click back on main/parent window (sorry, that part is significant) address bar, hit ctrl-c, and out it goes. Other windows, like the one i'm typing in, are not affected. I'll make a point of trying it on NT4 tomorrow.
reproduced on nt4 sp3 builds 2000332210 and 2000032308.
reproduced with 2000032416 w95.
reproducible NT4 SP3 build 2000032416. will continue checking daily builds but refrain from posting comments daily until further direction receiver or behavior can no longer be reproduced. Steps to reproduce: 0. Get a mozilla instance- fresh start or a new window. 1. File | Open Web Location (mouse it or alt-f-l). 2. Give focus to main-window navbar. 3. Ctrl-C. Additional information: --cannot reproduce after mousing over main-window menu bar.
w95, build 2000032409, 2000032416 Looks like having the location dialog up causes keyboard input in main-window textboxes/areas to be mishandled. To kill the application instance: 1. Ideally, have several main-window instances open; page content doesn't seem significant. 2. Go to home.netscape.com or any page that has a textbox/area. 2. File | Open Web Location (mouse or alt-f-l). 3. Click the "Weather Search - Enter city..." textbox in main-window or other available textbox/area in main-window, including nav-bar or sidebar-search-text. 4. Depress 'q' Related: Follow steps 1 through 3 above. 4. File | Open Web Location (mouse or alt-f-l) to raise the location dialog. 5. Type 'n'. You should have a new main-window instance. Do whatever you want with it. 6. Back in the original main-window, dismiss and then raise the location dialog again. 7. Click the textbox in main-window. 8. Type one of the following chars for the desired result: c death to the main-window instance d Composer with page in edit mode e edit context menu l another location dialog o open dialog s save dialog i, p Mail! I would have expected 'm' to do that and, 'q' kills the app. If the app wasn't killed, dismiss the location dialog and raise again. Go back and try another char. Note: Other application instances are not affected by the application instance being killed. [ctrl-] is optional. Text may be present in the main-window navbar or document textbox/area and may be selected when the [ctrl]-c is issued. The carat position in the textbox/area is not significant.
reproducible nt4 sp3 and w95 builds 2000032409 and 2000032416. Also reproducible in composer- both OSs, both builds above- edit a page with a textbox and follow steps for browser. With location dialog raised, first keystroke in a textbox/area in parent main-window is treated as an accelerator(accesskey) for main-menubar.
reassigning to danm for triage, cc saari.
The Open Location Dialog is modal, and it's a bug that you can even give focus to its parent window. Why doing so has such neat repercussions is something of a mystery. (Well, it seems the File Menu in the parent window can't release keyboard focus while basically still processing the "open location dialog" command). That's probably excuseable behaviour. So rather than solving it, I've nipped it instead by reinstating the modal window's modal behaviour (see bug 30633.)
(PS: thanks, jonrekai, for all the analysis. It made the problem much more clear.)
glad i could help make an issue readily identifyable- you're the ones who deserve the thanks, though. :)
