Description of problem:
Input seems to stop working in firefox and thunderbird. I start typing and input just stops working.
It is very annoying. Happens I think mostly in Firefox, Thunderbird, I think. I can get it too work again by focusing on a different window, type something then refocus back on where I left off so it starts accepting input again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Haven't been able to reproduce it. I will update the bug as I work on it.
Steps to Reproduce:
Stops accepting Keyboard Input
Should allow keyboard input.
Seems like a window manager issue to me. Which one do you use? Gnome, KDE, or something else?
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.
I discovered what the problem was.
When I write in Chinese, the input method i was using SCIM, would crash Thunderbird.
I have since removed SCIM, and have switched to the pinyin-ibus method.
Pinyin-ibus has its own issues, but at least it does crash my app I am working in.
So I think we can close this ticket.
resolved by switching to ibus and dumping scim.
