Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

I will be in Firefox, then I'll open a new window or tab with ctrl+n or
ctrl+t, and I cannot type in the address bar or any place in the
browser. It seems like a freeze, but I am able to open up tabs and
highlight text with the mouse.  A similar thing happens in Pidgin.  I'm
in a given conversation window then I switch to the buddy list with
alt+tab, go back to the conversation window, and I cannot enter text
with my keyboard. But If I do that again, then I am able to type in it
again.  This is frustrating.  It happens on all three of my machines, an
Athlon XP, an Athlon64 (32-bit system though), and my IBM Thinkpad T60.
I couldn't find anything similar. And I haven't found people with
similar experiences.  To get the effect in in Firefox, you might have to
open new windows more than a few times. My system is update to date.
