Alt+PageUp and Alt+PageDown shortcuts don't work when editor is not focused
Last modified: 2013-03-03 22:19:29 EST
Description of problem:
In web editor, Alt+PageUp and Alt+PageDown shortcuts to modal navigation only work if the editor is open and has focus. These shortcuts are useful even without an editor open (e.g. in future read-only mode), so should work regardless whether the editor is open.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any document with strings
2. Hold Alt and press PageDown
Next fuzzy/untranslated textflow is selected
Committed in master: https://github.com/zanata/zanata/commit/1a9846a12ca5f4ebd9a49894afcd41e5e8aa2587
it works fine now except for one weird behaviour under firebox.
On the very last fuzzy/untranslated entry of the whole document, it won't work for Alt+up if you want to navigate back fuzzy/untranslated entries, while the editor is closed but still focused. In this case, Alt+up would only work when editor is enabled by clicking it, so users can navigate back fuzzy/untranslated entries.
chrome doesn't have this issue.
verified in Zanata version 1.6.0-alpha-3-SNAPSHOT (20120515-0020).

Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field

We only listen to keyboard events when focus is within editing area.
In Firefox, when reaching the end of the document, focus will not be on editing area and further keyboard shortcut won't work.
Use mouse to click on navigation buttons when focus has lost .
May have to use mouse occasionally under Firefox.
