Running as a normal user and using the fluxbox wm, with mozilla firebird and/or sylpheed and/or xterm, all keyboard input suddenly becomes ignored, and I need to exit fluxbox ( using the mouse ) and run startx again.
This problem most often occurs with mozilla firebird while the cursor is in a text box feild ( eg, while posting to a forum ).
I am not 100% sure, but I think I recall leaving the PC after the problem occured, coming back hours later, and keyboard input was accepted again.
Use fluxbox and mozilla firebird frequently, particuarly on webpages with fields to fill out ( eg, forums, webmail, etc )
