Clip text hotkey triggering Lock Computer in Firefox (Beta M10.5)

Postby googlymoogly » Sun Nov 08, 2009 4:42 pm

Very odd thing.

I can reproduce this 100% on two computers running Windows 7 x64.
I am using beta M10.5.
Firefox v3.5.4, Firefox v3.0.16 (second computer)


1. Open Firefox.
2. Select some text.
3. Hit the Clip text hot key.
4. Windows will now lock as if you've pressed Win+L
5. Unlock Windows.
6. Check CintaNotes, see that the text was actually clipped and made into a note. It was.

I've tried different hotkeys and it seems to only happen if I use Win+something. For example, Win+Z triggers it, also Win+[any F* key], so it's not like I'm using some reserved Firefox hotkey.
Firefox is the only program which seems to exhibit this behaviour.

Thanks for the report.
This is really strange. I couldn't reproduce it with the FireFox versions specified.
But I have XP here. Does it happen only on Win7 x64?

HI Alex
I cannot reproduce this on WIN 7 32Bit (or on XP or Vista 32 Bit editions).

Tried it on XP here and I can't reproduce it.

I will try Vista x86 tomorrow (at work).

It seems to only happen if you have selected the URL in the address bar or if you've selected text in an editable text box. If you select static text on a page, it's fine.

Hello

I can reproduce this behaviour on windows 7 x64 and FF 3.5.5. I.e. I can assign WIN + F5 in CintaNotes. If i press "WIN + F5" I get the quick log out if URL or edit box is selected. After login again the txt was clipped.

No Problems with IE.

Hi EXtes, thanks for reporting!

I will try to reproduce the problem on windows 7 x64. If it's there then I'll be able to debug it.
Thanks again.
