Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 537059
Firefox does not honor Gnome Input Settings
Last modified: 2009-11-16 07:48:11 EDT
Ok, sorry for the delay. Updated my netbook today with latest patches (FF
3.5.5) and now the behaviour is correct.
Think this can be closed, now.
OK, let's try another line of offense. Are you able to reproduce the same
problematic behavior when you run Firefox in the safe mode (i.e., run firefox
from the command line as firefox -safe-mode)? If yes, could you please download
upstream firefox binary from www.mozilla.com, unpack it to any directory, cd to
it, and then run firefox as ./firefox. Are you still able to reproduce this
Thank you in advance.
I confirm - Italian Language Extension present and enabled
This is strange. I am Czech, having Czech keyboard and Czech Firefox and
everything works well. If you go to Tools/Add-ons/Language Extensions. Do you
have Italian language pack present and it is not disabled?
Thank you for filing this bug report.
Description of problem:
With latest, Fedora 12 candidate (all updates applied) Firefox does not honor
keyboard input settings. I have an italian (living in italy...) keyboard, with
the system set in american english.
At the gdm login, the correct keyboard appears (italian) and the system
settings work ok in every application (gnome related) and also not gnome
related (Chromium, WingIde).
The exception is Firefox, which does not follow keyboard layout when entering
text in forms and url address - it shows the behaviour of standard us keyboard
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Firefox 3.5.4-1.fc12 i686
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 12 RC and all updates
2. Select a different keyboard from gnome preferences
3. Start Firefox and test the keyboard layout
Firefox maintains US English Keyboard Layout entering data
Firefox follows the settings of gnome preferences
