[Bug 795052] Re: Laguage indicator not changing when switching language using keyboard in Firefox


** Attachment added: "bug.ogv"

** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: language-selector
  When switching the language using keyboard short cut the indicator in
  the notification area does not reflect it sometimes. I use Scroll Lock
  LED as my backup indicator, and it always works fine.
  Tested with Gnome-no-effects, Unity, Gnome-with-effects, and it is
  definitely compiz's fault.
  What I have configured is,
  - separate keyboard layout for each window
  - toggle between two layouts using Right Alt
  - use Scroll Lock LED to indicate alternative layout
  Steps to reproduce with Firefox 4.
  1. Open web page in Firefox
  2. Click on a link that pops up a new window. Alternately, right-click on a link and choose to open it in a new window
  3. When new window pops up and is fully loaded, use keyboard short cut to switch the layout
  4. You should observe the LED indicating the layout has indeed been switched while indicator in the notification area remains unchanged, now indicating the wrong layout
  5. You can type in some text into the window you have opened in step 2 to confirm
  6. Close the window you have opened in step 2, which should make the window opened in step 1 active
  7. We now expect the layout to return back to original one, used for that window from step 1; however, the layout does not change automatically. We still have keyboard layout and panel indicator mismatch.

  I came across this problem specifically with Firefox. If anyone can
  confirm this bug with other apps please speak up.
