Re: IE7 and switching between keyboard layouts
Another potentially related bug is that the address bar and window have their
keyboard layout defined independently. For example, if you switch the layout
to type in a url, you have to also click the main browser window and also
switch layouts to match.
I can't see how it could be advantageous to have two parts of the same
program using different keyboard layout.
