I'm often using Alt+Tab to switch between apps.
When I switch form NetBeans to an other app,
IDE's menu stays highlighted, so when I go back
to NetBeans I cannot type until I press Esc or
Alt to exit from the menu.
It doesn't happen when you switch slowly and
after switching you release Tab and then Alt.
Steps to reproduce:
1. When NetBeans IDE is active press and keep Alt
2. Press Tab to switch to an other app
3. Release Alt, then release Tab
If the second app's window is smaller than IDE
you will see, that File menu of NetBeans is
highlighted. When you switch back to IDE
(doesn't matter how, even with mouse on the
taskbar), you'll see the File is still
highlighted and you cannot type in a text editor.
Thx for report, however it's duplicate of 42954 and 42113.
Unfortunately it looks like I can't do anything to fix this issue
(it's Swing's LF issue), but at least I'll try to find out what is
happening behind the scenes.

This seems to be very common and annoying. See the following reports:
Isn't that a reason to raise priority?
I've read all the issues you point to and it seems that it's been
repeatedly evaluates as jdk bug, not netbeans.
We can hardly do anything about it. closing as won't fix.
OK, you forced me to install JDK 1.5 beta 2 and it solved the
Switch NetBeans to Metal look and feel, and the problem will
disappear. And Metal looks better anyway.
