#1007 Autotype does not work anymore with Firefox 13


Using Windows 7 64x and Keepass 2.19

After updating to Firefox 13 the Autotype does not work anymore. It switches to the firefox window but (I asume) firefox does not accept any keypresses that are sent. Not even the Enter key at the end.
There just does not happen anything in the firefox window.

I have tested on 2 computers with firefox 13 and one computer with firefox 12 and keepass 2.19.
Both firefox 13 do not work anymore. Firefox 12 works.

    If it works in 12 but not 13 it's a Firefox issue, not a KeePass bug.
    Is there a setting in Firefox to allow keyboard interaction - ask on the Firefox support site?

    cheers, Paul

    I can't reproduce this. I've just tested KeePass 2.19 + Firefox 13.0 on Windows 7 x64, and it works perfectly fine.

    Something else on your machine must have changed.

    @dreichl: Thanks I managed to solve it. A setting that was deactivated after the update (possibly new).
    @pail459: Of course you are correct. Maybe it would have been better to post as a feature request.
    This definitely is a Firefox issue but if it had not been solvable then KeePass would have been no longer my tool of choice. Lucky me it works. :-) Wouldn't want to miss it.
