Details

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/16.0
Build ID: 20121024073032

Steps to reproduce:

In the address bar typed the beginning of a web address (this happens with any word that gets an underline, for example, "tiny" causes this issue) and then hit the period or "dot" key.


Actual results:

The underline was removed but no "dot" was inserted. (This also happens with the spacebar)


Expected results:

It should have inserted the key pressed. This does NOT occur in Chrome. (The fact it does not occur in Chrome despite using Swype in both cases is why I submitted it here to Mozilla, since it means Mozilla's doing something different/extra from Chrome).
Can you try Nightly (http://nightly.mozilla.org), and report back if that works or not? Also which device and version of Swype are you using?

It appears to be fine in nightly! Any idea what changed?

This is occurring again in Firefox Beta (which is newer than nightly at the time of this original bug submission). So it's come back.

On Nexus 7 nightly this appears to be fixed.

Aaron, this is appearing in Beta. Is the current Beta what used to be Nightly when we tested this? (I think so as this was feb 11, and nightly switched to beta on feb 19) If so, it has again come back. If that's the case then it appears this issue always returns when moving from Nightly to Beta.

That would have been Nightly, (Firefox 21) which is now Aurora (Firefox 21).
