MacOS X.5 on a MacBook Pro Core Duo, 2.16Ghz, 2GB Ram.
When going to gmail.com, and composing a mail, when in the textarea, when the left/right shift key is pressed, it acts as a tab and moves the cursor to the address field.
After a bit or debuggin, I found the offending code in :
./WebCore/platform/mac/KeyEventMac.mm on line 780
When commenting out the offending line as such :
case 56: // Left Shift
case 60: // Right Shift
//return ([event modifierFlags] & NSShiftKeyMask) == 0;
the problem is rectified. However, this is untested on other platforms/OS'.
I can't get this to happen on GMail at all (v1 or v2).
Sounds like bug 16381 to me.
Yes it looks like the same bug, however, I can reproduce it every time using the nightly build. And this is on gmail v2.
Are you using a localized version of GMail (I'm not sure if it is already localized to any languages though)? If you do, could you please check if this also happens for you with English localization?
Nope, using the normal english version.
I'm not able to reproduce this in Gmail. However I thought that all international gmail accounts were still getting v1 regardless?
For me, the ability to choose v1 or v2 only depends on the language I choose in preferences. With Russian, I only get v1, but with English, I can choose v2, which doesn't have this problem.

Can't reproduce this. Either on Gmail V1 or V2 and with Safari3.1 or nightly r31848.

I also cannot reproduce the problem in the latest nightly of WebKit
