Mozilla-specific bug September 25, 2003 1:08 PM   Subscribe

Odd: using Mozilla 1.4, I can't enter text into the text fields on the search page -- but I can paste into them. What's up with that?

Furthermore, I'm able to type in the field once I've run a search, but hitting the backspace button takes me back a page rather than deleting.

Very odd.

I've had Mozilla go crazy on me like that once or twice. Try quitting teh app, hitting ctrl-alt-del and killing the process completely (check the Processes pane in Win2k/XP). Is it only on Metafilter that this is happening?

Yeah, I've been using MT, Google and commenting on other sites all day -- not to mention I'm able to comment here. Very strange indeed. I'll try your advice.

That happens to me from time to time in Galeon on linux. Usually I can just windowshade and re-expand the window, and it goes back to normal. Sometimes I have to kill the process though.

Either way, I don't think it's a MeFi thing.

Yep, it went away. Thanks Space Coyote.

What a weird bug.
