Description David Mason 2011-08-08 06:56:22 UTC
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686 (x86_64)) AppleWebKit/534.30 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/12.0.742.124 Safari/534.30

When moving from one editor window to another in Chrome, whether using navigation key shortcuts or by clicking in the target cell, the editor window for the new cell opens but immediately loses focus. A user cannot type in the cell until they have used Tab / Alt+Tab or a mouse click to move focus to the cell.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
Appears to vary between different computers
1.Sign in and open webtrans editor in Chrome
2.Select and focus first target cell (currently requires two clicks)
3.Select the next target cell with
   a. mouse click;
   b. Alt+k;
   c. Alt+down; OR
   d. Ctrl+Enter
4. Try to type in the editor cell or use one of the key shortcuts
Actual Results:  
Editor window opens for second target cell, but loses focus so typing and key shortcuts don't work.

Expected Results:  
Typing immediately after selecting a target cell appends typed characters to any existing content. Key shortcuts work.

This appears to correspond with the "Saved changes to translation unit" message appearing in the blue bar near the project/document name.

On another machine, the bug could only be reproduced by typing Alt+j followed by Alt+k in rapid succession.

Do you mean bug 728854?  I think that's actually a different problem, because it makes the editor cell go away.

In *this* bug, the editor cell is there, it just doesn't have focus.

Comment 3 David Mason 2011-08-08 23:21:37 UTC
You're right, the behaviour is different between this and bug 728854.
