After running the installer, the first run on my machine is flaky.  Examples
-I can't type into the Location bar
-I can't type into TEXTAREA fields.
-I can't type Control-2 to open the Mail client
-I see double menu items in the Peronsal Bookmarks toolbar.  That is, I see all
my bookmarks, and then I see them again right below.

Quit/Relaunch solves these problems.

Marking 091 and regression, please correct if that's wrong.

Text field stuff might be editor, adding beppe to CC.  ctl-2 might be saari or

double menus is another existing bug
Keywords: regression

FWIW, I didn't have a problem typing in the URL bar of the 6/6 build after install.

Bob - how do you do your installation?  Do you install over an existing version
(files)?  Do you do a clean install?

Also, are you using the branch or trunk builds?  Which directory did you get
your build from - if branch, it'll show 091 notation in the directory name.

091 can't wait for this unless someone can explain why -> 092 for now.

with builds from Sunday.

Tested by using stub and net installers on mac, win32 and linux as well as the
zipped builds on mac, win and linux.  no problems with the 0.9.1 Milestone

hmm, I don't remember targeting this to 0.9.2.  Unsetting since I'm unlikely to
fix this (or any other code-level bug). Anyone want to take this off my hands
and give it to a developer?
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.2 → ---

I have not seen this problem lately.  It's probably been fixed. Is this now fixed and we can close this bug ?

I have not seen this problem in the past month.  I think it's safe to say that
it's fixed.
