I'm using Midori, A WebkitGtk-based browser.

I'm not sure how this can be a WebKit problem.

Can you give a few more details?

- What's your keyboard layout?
- How do you type the tilde?
- Does it fail only in the URL bar or also in other text fields?
- Does it happen in other GTK+ applications?

Sorry, I was reading too fast. So you can actually type it in the URL bar.

Do you have problems with accents or other symbols?
Comment 3 alexander.wilms 2013-07-01 11:03:11 PDT
No, e.g. é or ê can be typed without an issue

Does not look like a WebKit bug, seems a problem with your environment

I also can't reproduce that problem here, I tried with Midori 0.4.3, GtkLauncher and MiniBrowser. It works fine in all cases.

Do you still have that problem? Can you try with a different version of Midori, or some other webkit-based browser?

I tried Epiphany on the same system with the same result. Typing ~ works in Firefox, though.

The error did not occur using Midori 0.5.5 on Ubuntu 13.04

Looks like it's resoled now
