Description

11 years ago
To reproduce:
1. Try to enter the tilde sign on a keyboard with German keyboard layout

Note that SeaMonkey/FF/TB ignores your tilde keypress and the sign will not appear on screen.

This regressed between 2006-06-05-09 and 2006-06-06-10. So it's probably a regression from Bug 339723 (it fits in the regression timeframe around that day). I don't know if the patch in that bug will fix this bug here.

The keyboard test page outputs this in a build before the main patch from Bug 339723:
1) keydown charCode=0 keyCode=61 character=| modifiers=Ctrl+Alt
2) keypress charCode=126 keyCode=0 character=|~|
3) keyup charCode=0 keyCode=61 character=| modifiers=Ctrl+Alt

In a build with the patch (so the nightly from 2006-06-06):
1) keydown charCode=0 keyCode=107 character=|
2) keypress charCode=43 keyCode=0 character=|+| modifiers=Ctrl+Alt
3) keyup charCode=0 keyCode=107 character=|

You can get the tilde sign by typing AltGr+ (the plus key, so +). AltGr should be the same as Ctrl+Alt, but only some platforms it seems. See http://carbon.cudenver.edu/~tphillip/GermanKeyboardLayout.html for a description/picture of the German keyboard layout.
The latest patch of bug 339723 fixes this bug too.
