Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1.1) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/2.0.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1.1) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/2.0.0.1

In various webpages (for example wordreference.com) where I have already typed a word previously, and need to look it up again (yay for studying foreign lanugages)

I'm unable to reselect the word.


Typing on webpages is frozen and I have to restart the browser.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. log on to webpage (www.wordreference.com) search for a word.
2. leave webpage (you don't need to close the browser)
3. return and try to research for the first word. try to select it instead of retyping the word.

PROBLEM #2

I don't know how to recreate this one: its happened on many different pages and randomly.
do you see this also in version 3.6?
