Having issue when trying to input Chinese in the search panel Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This addon is superb, but I'm having a little problem. I can not switch to Google pinyin to input Chinese into the "search panel". Pls look into this. Thank you very much!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.28.1-signed).
As per our email communications, this is due to an apparent Firefox bug that disables Chinese input into any textbox with id named 'key' - I say it's a Firefox bug because:
1. It doesn't make sense: id = 'key' does not mean this is a password field, where Chinese input should be disabled.
2. Firefox 17 fixed it, so it must have been considered a bug by FF dev themselves.
So As I explained above, I don't need to make any workaround - FS users just need to download the just-released FF 17 and install it, and you'd find that you can input Chinse in the Search Panel again.
