Description marcos ojeda 2010-04-18 13:52:17 PDT
The other day when i was browsing ffffound, i noticed that pushing the C key (maps to J) to navigate down no longer worked. I assumed this was a webpage error, until i realized that pushing the actual J key caused the navigation to work again.

I made an html page, which i am attaching, that adds an a keyup event to document and reports the event.keyCode and Sting.fromCharCode(event.keyCode) so you can see what i mean. Neither Safari, Chrome or Firefox have this problem, only webkit nightlies.

So, again, the error is that when i push the F key on my keyboard on the attached page, webkit reports that i pushed F while every other browser reports (correctly) that i pushed U.

Hope that helps, it's my first bug report, but i tried to make something to easily test this.

This is a result of fixing bug 36616. We need to find a way to make both work, although I'm not yet sure how.

Actually, it seems that IE remaps keycodes for (most?all?) Roman keyboards. So, we have the same problem with AZERTY, for example.
