Java applets don't receive keyboard input


Hello. I'm using Fedora 10 32-bit, kernel 2.6.27.9, with Firefox 3.0.5
Java version 1.6.0_07-b06

I've tried many java applets on internet, and none respond to keyboard input. I'm writing a little Java applet, and I'm trying to see if it at all receives any kind of event, but the keyPressed() method (KeyboardListener interface) never even gets called.

Any idea why this might be and how to fix it?

Nope.
PS : It's not firefox's fault. I've tried using an applet with java's applet-viewer, it doesn't work either.
Also, I've tried re-installing Java multiple times...

Just asking to make sure you are running the same java version you installed.

Sure thing :
java version "1.6.0_07"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_07-b06)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 10.0-b23, mixed mode)
