View Full Version : Maintaining keyboard focus
2006-07-22, 05:39 AM
Can anything be done to maintain keyboard focus on pages that allow for keyboard shortcuts. Safari and OmniWeb suffer from the same problem on pages like gmail or bloglines. When you first navigate to the page you need to click somewhere on the page for it to gain focus. If you then use a shortcut you need to click again on the page to regain focus. The same problem does not exist in firefox or Camino.

I use a few pages that have keyboard shortcuts. I can confirm that you have to click somewhere in the page before keyboard shortcuts will work (and would definitely like this to be fixed, since it wasn't an issue in OmniWeb 5.1.3 and earlier), but I usually don't have to click it again after using a shortcut. My guess is that perhaps you're using some kind of shortcut that causes a different page to load, and that's why you have to click again? Most of the things I use keyboard shortcuts for, don't cause a new page to load.

I agree, I think this is my largest quibble with OmniWeb at the moment. (Which attests to the wonderful state OmniWeb is in!)
I notice this most often when using gmail's keyboard shortcuts.
