Presumably the issue is that we lose focus or something and then the keyup goes to a different place and there is no keypress on the text control? Neil, what do other UAs do?

Works fine for me on Mac; the character just doesn't appear until after the alert is dismissed, which is the expected behaviour. Safari behaves the same. Doesn't work on Windows though. Not sure why the difference.
The attached testcase doesn't work for me on mac. If I dismiss the alert with the mouse, typeaheadfind opens with the char I typed. If I dismiss it with the keyboard, the original char is just lost....
Neil, can you have a look here?

This is because the focus is changing between content and chrome during a keypress. We fixed the cases where focus changed from chrome to content during a keypress in bug 551434, but not other cases as Olli believed it was too regression risky.
Created attachment 506432 [details] [diff] [review] patch This would fix it but haven't tested it much.
