| | Some system keys won't work while in opera - with os 4.5
Please Login to Remove!
Ok, here is the problem in short:
I own a 8700G. I installed the official latest version of OS 4.5 (188.8.131.52). Now when I'm in Opera browser (it's probably JAVA related) I can't press some shortcut keys.
While opera is open, I can't press the following shortcut keys:
1) the front convenience key (located between the "send" & the "end" button) which I customized to open the application switcher.
2) the left side convenience key which I customized to open the "messages" menu.
The results are: nothing happens. It just remains as if I didn't just press that key.
I also tried to set those 2 buttons to default, but that didn't help either.
3) the shurtcut to change language does not work, using either alt+enter or shift+space.
With the shortcut set to alt+enter, it reacts as if I pressed only the enter key, thus opening the link currently selected.
With the shortcut set to shift+space, it reacts as if I pressed only the space key, and it starts scrooling doen to the end of the page. If I happen to be in the address bar, lots of spaces are typed non-stop until I press the escape button (thanks god that works...).
I'm having this problem with a few other programs (Zelda, Ozshene Hebrew Calender and a few more which I can't remember), and I'm guessing this problem can be tracked down to JAVA programs only, as all of the mentioned programs are build on java (I theeenk).
So I think the problem is clear enough (and frustrating enough for me), so let's see who can help out a fellow Blackberry 8700 user.
