I use firefox to browse the net (various versions). On the wikipedia website
the cursor is not in the search box by default. When I type "search" in order
to jump to the text "search" just above the box it doesn't highlight that text -
most other website on the internet does. Also while on the website the <ALT>
keyboard shortcuts to open the various menus doesn't work either.
For the first, that's normal. Wikipedia is primarily a content site, for
*reading*. The space, pageup/pagedown, and cursor keys are expected to function
for normal scrolling. On the entry portal at http://www.wikipedia.org/ you will
find the focus is in the search box, but not on Wikipedia's content pages.
For the second, report the bug to Mozilla at http://bugzilla.mozilla.org if it
persists with Firefox 2.0.
For the third, upgrade to Firefox 2.0; it has changed the web shortcut keys so
they no longer interfere with regular menus on Windows and Linux.
For future reference, please report separate issues separately.
