On OS X, "Enter a new profile" text box does not take focus - all input goes to last focused area behind the profile modal dialog (i.e, in my case, the Terminal window) The task I am trying to do is to create a new profile for Firefox 3.5b4. I start Firefox by opening the terminal and type in, "./firefox -P -no-remote &" (I have beta99 as well open). When I am prompted to specify a new name, my input goes straight to the console window (i.e., I double click on the already specified, "Default User" name to highlight and begin to type, "Aaron") - this input goes straight to terminal This behavior seems apparent strictly on 3.5b4 STR 1. Download and extract Firefox 3.5 beta 4 2. Start Firefox with "./firefox -P -no-remote &" 3. When asked to specify a name for a new profile, begin typing ER: What I type is input to Terminal (my last focused window) AR: What I type is entered in the focused name textbox http://www.swfcabin.com/open/1244740239 (*.swf) displays a screencast of the issue
I just solved the problem, it was an improper extraction of the Firefox download. Having not copied over the folders MacOS, Plug-Ins, and Resources the files PkgInfo, and Info.plist to my installation folder this apparently causes the issue. Should this be marked invalid?
