Firefox problems with popups

Hi. I've posted this on the Discussion board and I'm reposting here.

I've been fighting with an issue with Firefox for a few weeks now, and quietly hoping that Mishoo's and/or Sleeman's updates would fix the problem, with no luck.

On popups (Insert Web Link, for example) Firefox refuses to allow me to set focus to any input field. That includes choosing anything from a select box, putting a cursor in a text field, ... pretty much anything but a submit button.

Here's the catch: I am able to regain control by selecting "OK" or "Preview". Basically, anything that submits and goes through validation will make the form usable. But it's highly annoying and I can't put it out as a production product like this.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

I should add that I have patched in Mishoo's 1/22 code fixes. That wasn't clear in my initial post.

Re: [bendog69] Firefox problems with popups

I have the same problem with Firefox and the InsertLink popup: setting focus on any field is impossible, no effect when clicking OK etc.

When using IE6, it works, but MS Script Debugger reports a runtime error in popups/popup.js, line 85 ('undefined' is NULL or no object):

var txt = i18n[span.firstChild.data];
(in the __dlg_translate function)

Does anybody know how to fix that?

Thanks, Lars

Re: [lars_h] Firefox problems with popups

Got the same problem. Unable to close the link windows in firefox.

For the I18n part, I resolved the problem by adding french translation for the dialog section. (by the way, french translation is very incomplete )

dialogs: { 
"Cancel" : "Annuler",
"Insert/Modify Link" : "Insťrer/Modifier un lien",
"New window (_blank)" : "Nouvelle fenÍtre (_blank)",
"None (use implicit)" : "Aucun (implicite)",
"OK" : "OK",
"Other" : "Autre",
"Same frame (_self)" : "MÍme c‚dre (_self)",
"Target:" : "Cible:",
"Title (tooltip):" : "Titre (info-bulles):",
"Top frame (_top)" : "Top frame (_top)",
"URL:" : "URL:",
"You must enter the URL where this link points to" : "Vous devez entrer l'URL vers laquelle ce lien pointe"
