User Agent: Opera/9.80 (X11; Linux x86_64; U; en) Presto/2.10.289 Version/12.02 Steps to reproduce: I cant't write tildes, with Opera browser I can write it and with other applications too but with firefox I can't do it Actual results: Nothing Expected results: Write tildes
I am using KDE desktop
Can you please provide more detailed steps to reproduce? Does this happen with Firefox 18.0a1 from nightly.mozilla.org? Do you have any add-ons or plug-ins installed? I cannot reproduce this locally. Everywhere I type the tilde works.
Component: Untriaged → General
I am using Mozilla 15.0.1 Mozilla for LinuxMint, the only plugins are flash and chatzilla. I am using LinuxMint 13 KDE
Can you please try the build directly from nightly.mozilla.org and not Mint's packaged version?
I installed the firefox from nightly.mozilla.org and I updated all my system and the problem continue.
What keyboard layout (language) is your keyboard? Do you use Shift, Alt, AltGr, Compose or any such keys to type a tilde? Do you know if it used to work in an earlier version of Firefox?
Component: General → Widget: Gtk
Product: Firefox → Core
Summary: no puedo tipear tildes → Can not type tilde (~)
And where do you reproduce that, i.e., in all text editors? or only in some website? If it's latter, let us know the URL.
I type the tilde key first and the letter next, I use the gmail editor and the wikipedia editor
> I type the tilde key first and the letter next Are you talking about using ~ as a diacritical mark? For example in ã ñ etc.
It looks like hitting the '~' key won't generate a proper key event. When I hit the '~' key twice, Firefox 16 for Linux generated the following events, which seems broken. The same thing happens with '^' and '`'. keyup keyCode=0 which=0 charCode=0 keydown keyCode=0 which=0 charCode=0 keyup keyCode=0 which=0 charCode=0 Firefox for windows works fine. When I hit the '~' key twice, the following events were generated. keydown keyCode=160 which=160 charCode=0 keyup keyCode=160 which=160 charCode=0 keydown keyCode=160 which=160 charCode=0 keypress keyCode=0 which=94 (^) charCode=94 (^) keypress keyCode=0 which=94 (^) charCode=94 (^) keyup keyCode=160 which=160 charCode=0
This happened when I use a German keyboard. Thanks.
