You won't be able to get into this site, as you need a log-on,but I list it as it's one I stay in a good bit of the day.  I have to enter the phone number that I wish to dial.  Very often when I go to enter the data, it's as if the keyboard doesn't work.  I then re-connect, and it still doesn't work.  But I hit "Dial" with no number in it, and when I get the error message that I need to enter a phone number and hit okay, then I can enter data.  It often happens in other sites as well, and the only way to be able to enter data is to do what I have described.   It happened when I was on the CNET site, as well.  You just can't enter any date, such as in the "Search" box.

I constantly run into this problem with Firefox 1.5.0.4 on OS X 10.4 - for some reason, I am unable to select and/or enter type into any field, including the address and search bars. I know that this bug existed in all of the 1.5 betas, and has been much worse since the final release. This bug is similar to the Windows bug 243405, however nothing in particular seems to trigger it. It does seem to happen more often when more tabs are open. Unlike the Windows bug, I can find no consistent workaround - sometimes switching tabs fixes it, sometimes I have to open a new window, sometimes I have to restart Firefox.
Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!
