This is unfortunate and if there will be new FF9 builds, I'm hoping to get that patch to those builds. But can't promise anything. But, anyway, the key event is fired at window level. you can use window.onkeydown = ....
I'm sorry but I don't understand if the problem has been solved or not... Is there a way to use the standard JS method body.onkeydown with FF9? Thank you.
@MiNiX: This Bug is a duplicate of bug 696020. Have a look there. The issue is fixed but will be released with Firefox 10. So, you'll probably have to wait a few weeks.
Thanks you very much for the information Chris78. I can't wait for the next release! Kind regards.
I've found a temporary workaround for FF9 by adding (!) the onkeydown="process_key(event);" to the <html> tag. I've left the same in the <body> tag, on FF8 (for example) this'll still fire only one event.
@pgmin00: yes, it works and the event fires, but it doesn't work properly if you have to manage other clicks and keypresses in the page.
pmin00 I don't know how you found that the HTML tag processes an event, but that's brilliant. Andrew
