I came accross a very nasty bug in this configuration:
FireFox+Windows+[Flex area using the wmode=transparent]
If the flex area has a text input, then the keyboard mapping
is stuck with a wrong keyboard mapping and some characters can
simply not be entered. For instance, on a French keyboard, it is
not possible to enter a @ character.
This bug seems very old, here is a reduced situation dated
from 2005 (!):
* does anyone know of a work-around for this (and yes we _do_
need the transparent feature :-)
* why has this nasty bug not being fixed since 2005 ? I
posted a bug report today but it must have been done before.
I do not know if this is a bug with Firefox or the Flash
player but in all cases many Flex apps can be affected by this bug
if they use the transparent feature.
