Description Stephen Warren 2005-04-09 00:44:29 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
CTRL-A is supposed to select everything. What "everything" is should follow the focus. However, it doesn't work in the "Location:" text entry area at least.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
nautilus-2.8.1-4 rpm

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in with Gnome desktop
2. Double-click "Computer: icon
3. Wait for Nautilus window to appear
4. Click in white text-entry box to the right of the text "Location:" near the top of the Nautilus window. Notice that focus/caret moves into this text box.
5. Press CTRL-A, in an attempt to select the text in the "Location" text-entry box.

Actual Results:  All the icons in the main pane of the Nautilus window were selected.

Expected Results:  The text in the "Location" text entry box should have been selected, so that typing on the keyboard would replace that text.

Fedora Core 3 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 FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
