Description of problem:
When launching mozilla click on the url box to type in a new location and 
cursor will change to the input cursor and nothing will happen. It will not 
accept text input as in the keyboard is disconnected. I can not fix this but 
can duplicate it every time.

Click backdrop click mozilla and its ok. Seen this also - always with
Metacity including FC2

Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2004-11-10 04:51:29 UTC
I think this is presumed a gecko issue until tracked down in enough
detail to blame metacity. It happens sometimes with epiphany also. I
have never seen it in non-gecko-using apps.

May have to do with the "jump to link starting with letter" keynav mode.

Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 15:45:19 UTC
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

No response from reporter for a year to request for retest.  Closing.
