Description Matt Lilek 2008-06-23 21:43:52 PDT
1. Select some text on this page and copy it.
2. Right click the comments <textfield> on this page - notice that the Paste menu item is not enabled
3. Left click anywhere on the page (including in the <textfield> if you so desire)
4. Start typing - notice that the text appears in the <textfield> despite it having no cursor (hitting enter for a newline doesn't do anything)

This also applies to <input type="text"> and isn't a regression from Safari 3.1.1, but is almost certainly a regression from Safari 2.

Looks like it's fixed in WebKit ToT.

Nope, just reproduced with my original instructions with ToT + Safari 3.2.1 on both Leopard and Vista.
Comment 3 Alexey Proskuryakov 2009-01-02 00:43:38 PST
This only happens when right-clicking, not Ctrl-clicking. Also, (4) appears fixed in ToT - but not the primary issue.

What does this do to the "select the word under the cursor" behavior when you right-click on non-editable text?
Comment 8 Alexey Proskuryakov 2009-02-11 10:41:32 PST
Words in non-editable text still do get selected when right-clicking.
