Has anybody experienced any problems w/ firebird or mozilla to where it launches and you goto type in some text and it locks up on you?

And are their any fix's or workarounds?

I have experienced something similar. Usually it happens after running the app awhile. I go to type some sort of input and it won't take; the flashing cursor bar is gone, though the mouse still does the usual things. Cut and paste are gone. It only has happened to me when I run KDE 3.1.3 (FreeBSD 4.8-release).

I'm using IceWM now, and the Linux versions of Firebird and Netscape 7.1 (had them on a backup CD). I frankly believe it's a KDE thing, because it has never happened since moving out of it.

I installed the linux version and it works fine.. also discovered a workaround.

if you launch firebird then type some text in a terminal or something then go back to firebird it seems to work..

I had the same problem on Obsd, if you hit stop, put the text in the lil address box, it dosn't freeze.
