browser windows go 'keydead': keyboard stops working
BUILD ID: 2001022705 Sorry for filing this under Browser-General but I really have no idea.... For the last few builds I have noticed that keyboard input will just randomly stop working on a window-by-window basis in mozilla. When this happens the following things don't work - typing in the location bar - typing in a text input box - keyboard shortcuts (e.g. C-n for new window, C-w for close window) Although the location bar doesn't work correctly in these keydead windows, it does respond to some keystrokes. For example if I type a lower-case 'f' into a keydead window which has some forward history, it will act as though I clicked on the forward button. I have put off reporting this bug for a few builds now since I wanted to see if I could notice a pattern for what was causing it. I have not yet noticed any such pattern. The only thing I can say is that no window has gone keydead on me while I was typing in it.
