Safari specific. 

Safari still demonstrates a text input bug. Similar issue is tracked by bugs: 8010009, 8011862, which have been fixed on Firefox only. A fix for Safari is needed. 

Mac users with Safari play a few of pogo word games and having problems trying to type into the game.
The best example can be found with Crossword Cove, Scrabble or Boggle Bash.

Reproduction steps from Pogo QA team:

Update reproduce steps
OS: Mac 10.7.5
Java version:1.7.0_17
Browser: Safari
1. Play Crossword Cove by guest/free/club user
2. Start game
3. Click PLAY TODAY'S PUZZLE
4. Type any words on the game by keyboard


Actual result:
For Safari, words can be typed at first, if switch to another browser and return,then words are unable to type by keyboard. (FF, words could never be typed in game.) 

Expect result:
Words can be typed in game

The function works fine on Java version 1.6

                                    

Comments
Pogo had tested against Java 1. 7.0_25-b07 and b08. The result sounds good in Firefox, but the issue still remains in Safari6.

MacOS 10.8.3

FireFox(20.0):
     Default: Better Cannot input keys below: "Backspace","up""down""left""right"
     Intermission: Better
     Change app: Better

Safari:(6.0.4):
    Default: Same Same as the issue before.
                                          Cannot input keys below: "Backspace","up""down""left""right"
    Intermission: Same Same as the issue before.
                                          Unable to type any words even in chat panel
    Change app: Same Work fine when switch to other app, but after click "?",
                                          "Badges"buttons in the game, we are unable to type the words then

this bug will address fix for Safari browser

Removing "REGRESSION" from the bug synopsis, since it has never worked with JDK7.

There's a new bug about refactoring (implement key generation on deploy side) - 8011755. It's targeted to JDK8 and too risky for 7u40.

Looks like this particular bug (8013948) is about another focus issue (unable to type after switching between browsers) and it might be already fixed. Transferring to AWT team.

The focus bug is not fixed and reproducible in JDK-8. 

The bug is reproducible in Safari 6.0.5. When we Alt-Tab from the browser to another app and Alt-Tab back the key events come to CPlatformResponder from deploy but we are still not able to type. If I click the applet it starts working well.

Petr, is it possible to fix during next couple of week?

SQE-OK to get this fixed for 7u40.

The fix is on plugin side and Petr helped Deployment team

SQE is OK to defer the fix from the June CPU 
We prefer the option 2 as well.
                                     
2013-05-14
Since we are choosing option #2, it needs to be addressed in deployment

According to the submitter, it did not fix the problem by testing it on all 3 EA releases:

Java: 1.7.0_40 -b33,   1.7.0_40 -b40,   1.8.0-b97

OS Mac 10.8.4
Safari(6.0.4)
	

Default: Same as the issue before.
           Cannot input keys below: "Backspace","up""down""left""right"
	
Intermission: Same as the issue before.
                    Unable to type any words
	
Change app: Work fine when switch to other app, but after click "?", "Badges"buttons in the game, still unable to type the words then

SQE-OK to defer this issue to 8-pool
