I use Galeon, not Mozilla, but I sometimes see the same thing. As a
bypass, I select some text in an xterm; when I move the focus back to
the browser window, it works properly. I've seen some indications that
with Galeon, the keyboard focus is sometimes in another tab, so
switching tabs explicitly might help.
