Ah. I should’ve thought of that. I tried years ago to create a kind of kiosk app that used a web browser thinking I could put transparent buttons over top of the browser object, but as soon as the browser object got focus, I could no longer click buttons. The first click worked then nothing worked.

It turns out that this bug was actually another bug manifesting itself. There was a rogue browser widget (not visible) hiding in another group on the card gobbling up keystrokes on Windows platform. https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=19023 <https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=19023>

What’s worse is that the same bug bit me in the ass a year ago too. Fool me once, shame on you.
