Open Bug 764822 Opened 11 years ago Updated 6 months ago

onclick event does not report modifiers if user pressed enter instead of clicking


(Firefox :: Keyboard Navigation, defect)






(Reporter: alliz_gub, Unassigned, NeedInfo)


When pressing Ctrl (or Shift) and clicking a submit button, the event will report ctrlKey (or shiftKey) as true.
With the focus in a form field and pressing Ctrl (or Shift) + Enter will *not* report ctrlKey (or shiftKey) as true.

Problem seen with Firefox 13 under kubuntu 12.04 and Windows XP.

You can test with

Press some modifiers, and *click submit* or *press Enter* to see the difference.
The date is present to be sure info has been refreshed because some modifiers (under some other browser or OS) will not submit.

I have discovered this yesterday, 9 years after the OP, on macOS. This happens also when clicking a space bar to check a checkbox.
