Description Chris Petersen 2006-10-14 20:22:32 PDT
With r17027, I can't paste into the message body of a rich text message when pressing command -V. The text actually pastes into the TO: field instead.

1. With r17027, copy some text from any page. Now, login to your Gmail account
2. Create a new rich text message
3. Place the caret into the message body and press command-V
4. Instead of the text appearing in the message body it pastes into the TO: field.

The text should paste into the message body after I press command -V but doesn't. Note: This does work correctly when I select Edit - Paste for this same rich text message.

Notice that this doesn't happen if you use Paste from the Edit menu.  This is because GMail calls window.focus() on keyDown, which makes the main frame first responder, focusing the first focusable element in the main frame, which is the TO: field.  Marking this a dupe of 9640.
