Description kirillkh 2010-01-27 03:13:34 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE 6.8 (Build 200912041610)
Java: 1.6.0_16; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 14.2-b01
System: Linux version 2.6.31-17-generic running on amd64; UTF-8; en_US (nb)

The following issue occurs, when the Navigator window is undocked from the main window. When editing a file in the main window and then pressing the shortcut to switch to Navigator (Ctrl-7 in NB5.5 bindings), a wrong component inside the Navigator window gets focus, so in order to make arrow buttons (or search-by-typing) to work, one has to press TAB twice. This works fine if Navigator is docked into the main window.

I have dual-monitor setup, but this doesn't seem to matter (at least the issue manifests itself even when I place all windows onto the main monitor).

The issue is not present in other windows (Projects or Files), when they are undocked (e.g. arrow buttons work immediately without pressing TAB).

Sorry Dafe, it's mine.
