Description Jef Spaleta 2004-09-19 16:38:24 UTC
Description of problem:
Trying to navigate through edittable text in a text box like
the Description box in bugzilla, and the arrow keys do not work
to move around the edittable text. Even though the edittable field
is in focus and i can type in it, the arrow keys are controlling the
scrollbar on the side of the box.

As a comparison the binary from mozilla.org lets me navigate the
textbox region as expected using the arrow keys.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
always... i even deleted .mozilla/firefox to make sure this is not a
usespace issue.. and compared with the binary from mozilla.org. Afaict
this is a bug specific to the rpm build.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to enter a new bug in bugzilla
2. try to edit the description box and navigate inside the edittable
text using the arrow keys
Actual results:
arrow keys are not moving the cursor inside the box.
up/down arrow keeys seem to be stuck scoped on the scrollbar and not
the text box itself.

Expected results:
I should be able to move up/down left/right with the arrow keys
while editting the text in the text box.

Additionally it seems Shift-Enter pasting is broken, while CTRL-V
pasting works.

Wow, CTRL-A Select-All within a text area finally works.
/me does the happy dance.

Besides the arrow keys, the Home key doesn't work when editing a URL
in the address box.

Whoops, meant to paste:

Comment 7 Brian Ryner 2004-09-25 22:09:06 UTC
This seems to be caused by not having MOZILLA_OFFICIAL=1 set in the
environment when building.  That causes the build id to be 00000000,
and so components aren't re-registered as they should be when the
build id changes.

Fixed in firefox-0.10.0-1.0PR1.1 which should be available tomorrow
tomorrow morning.
