I have all the latest updates...this problem is here for a while.
using latest macos and latest firefox 3.6.14 - can't write hebrew letters inside flash. - using windows with firefox and flash solves the problem.

when i change my keyboard to hebrew i can write in hebrew in the html parts but not inside the flash.

Summary: Can't write hebrew letters using mac and firefox → Can't write hebrew letters inside flash using mac and firefox
Confirmed with FF3.6.14 on OS X 10.6.6. Maybe a problem with how we pass keystroke events on to the plugin? If I switch to any non-Latin keyboard layout (e.g. Cyrillic, Arabic, Devanagari, Hebrew, Thai....), I still get the "standard" Latin characters in the Flash text area.

This does not happen with Safari; the non-Latin keyboards work fine with the Flash text area. So it seems that it's not simply a Flash/Mac problem.

I checked several browsers, it seems this problem appears only in FF.
