When opening multiple windows the switching between windows with the combination Mac + ` doesn't work at first. If the cursor is in an active form field you have to click outside of the field first and then it works.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open 2 windows
2. 2nd window with a form field put cursor in field
3. use Mac + ` to switch windows

Actual Results:  
Mac entered ` in the field rather then switching windows

Expected Results:  
switch between windows

I have the same problem with my custom key setting.

It happens if any part has got the keyboard focus like the address bar, the message box in Chatzilla, this textarea while I type, or Firebug search box.

IOW, it seems to be quite down the stack.

I am under MacOSX 10.5.3

This is related to bug 417466 which is supposed to be fixed.


I suspect the solution applied then might need to be ported to controls/widgets...

I imagine they steel the focus from gecko, iow manage the keyboard events before gecko enters the dance.

I must say I have no idea if the comment here above could be correct, just a feeling.

This WORKSFORME in a recent 3.0.x build on 10.5.6/Intel (en-US).  Are people still seeing this?

Still there for me on 3.05 and 10.5.5/Intel.

I'll check when updated to 10.5.6.

The issue seems to be resolved. Marking as WORKSFORME since no one can reproduce.
