Yes, that would be it, I think. I have filed a bug report with Bugzilla. For how long have you observed this?

Bob,

One context was that I was using arrow keys to nudge (translate) a clicked model. After the click of the model, I would have problems similar to what you describe with a script field on the page until I clicked in a non-applet part of the page. The following pickCallback simulated clicking in a non-applet part of the page:

if (nudgeTyp != "") { document.getElementById("script").blur(); document.getElementById("script").focus(); document.getElementById("script").blur(); }

Like I said. I thought is was a general applet issue.

Bob,

There was no problem with html5, but I suspect you knew that. I don't have active Java right now.

BUT, I have encountered this problem in other contexts with the applet. I assumed is was a Java thing. When I encountered the problem, a forced JavaScript blur() then focus() would solve the problem. I could look up the context if it's useful, but your scenario comes close to what I was finding.

Firefox 18.0.1 is showing very odd behavior. I'm wondering if this is reproducible for other in Firefox or other browsers.

1) open http://chemapps.stolaf.edu/jmol/simple2.htm
2) in the command textarea, enter

  background yellow

3) click on an atom
4) back in the textarea enter

  background white

Did that work? For me (4) fails to enter text.

5) click on the URL line, as if you were going to go to a new page
6) back in the textarea enter

  background green

It works, right?

I sure don't remember this being a problem -- or, actually, I remember something similar to this some time ago. Has it just suddenly reappeared?

I know what is basically happening, and I can turn it off.The applet, when you active it by clicking in it, also activates a keyboard listener. Somehow Firefox is not recognizing that the textarea should take that over, and  the applet's keyboard listener is continuing to take the keys. So, in (4), if *in the textarea* I type CTRL-K  (which turns on key entry) and then 

  background white [ENTER]

I see those characters in the bottom left-hand corner of the applet, and the command is executed.

Thoughts on this? Is it a feature I should just remove?
