Screenshot of epiphany showing a highlighted URL and misplaced text input
Description of problem:
Trying to edit a URL in the address field after selecting it with the mouse has no effect. The focus seems to be elsewhere, e.g. in some text field of the page as shown in the attached screenshot. On the other hand, the <backspace> key still works and allows to remove the undesired portion of the URL. Herafter, the new URL or parts of it can be appended in the text field.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter URL in address field and load target page.
2. Select URL with the mouse.
3. Enter a new URL.
New URL appears in the address field as it gets typed.
- This issue already affects GNOME 2.24.x as included in F10.
- midori-0.1.4-2.fc11.x86_64 behaves as expected in this respect.
- Changing the keyboard layout from evdev to a fixed one has no effect.
Just checked for the F10 i686 live CD after installing epiphany-2.24.3-4.fc10.i386, and in this case, the address bar actually works as expected. I thus have to revoke my earlier comment under "Additional info". It appears that GNOME 2.24.x is not affected.
A striking test case is the Hotmail service at http://login.live.com - when entering "Windows Live ID" or password, then the text appears at the beginning of the address bar instead of in the corresponding text fields. Any hint how to proceed further is highly welcome.
