Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-03-31 17:35:26 EDT
Description of problem:
On i586, Folders4Gmail works fine with the latest Firefox. On x86_64, if it is enabled, the first time I try navigating by typing more than one character (e.g. selecting the "firefox" component on Bugzilla by typing "firef", I can no longer use the keyboard to navigate (e.g. in Gmail and Google Reader, using j and k to navigate to the next/previous message)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Greasemonkey addon and then Folders4Gmail (http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/8810)
2. Alternatively, install the Better Gmail 2 addon
3. Verify that in Google Reader, j and k navigation works
4. Try entering a new bug in Bugzilla and select a component by typing its first few characters
5. Or use Gmail, enable keyboard shortcuts, enable goto-label (gl) feature from Labs, and type "gl"
6. Retry (3) or (4)
Actual results:
Step (6) fails

Expected results:
Should just work

Additional info:
The same sequence works on i586. This is tested on a fresh FFox profile. Disabling Folders4Gmail (leaving Better Gmail 2 and/or Greasemonkey installed) causes keyboard navigation to work fine on x86_64

This also affects AideRSS's Google Reader Greasemonkey script: http://gr.aiderss.com/

On i586, I can navigate in Google Reader using keyboard just fine. On x86_64, the script works (Folders4Gmail works too), but I can no longer use j and k to move between news items.

Disabling Greasemonkey after the problem exhibits itself does not help; I'd have to disable the userscripts (or disable Greasemonkey) and restart the browser.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting upstream bug report URL for tracking.

Thanks in advance.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
