No @ possible in Firefox

Hello, when I write in firefox 2 (OS is UX11v2) I am not able to write the @. I can open a terminal, write @ copy&paste into firefox. It is not very convenient.
Any ideas?

Thx Frank

Re: No @ possible in Firefox

Hi,

Could you post the output of the stty command?

Are you using CDE?

Hi,
yes. it is CDE.
The output of stty:

bash-2.05b# stty
speed 9600 baud; evenp hupcl
min = 1; intr = ^C; erase = ^H; kill = ^U;
eol2 = ^@; swtch = ^@;
susp = ^Z; dsusp = ^@;
werase = ^@; lnext = ^@;
-inpck -istrip icrnl -ixany ixoff onlcr
-iexten echo echoe echok

Best regards

Shalom,

First thing I see is you are using bash.

The POSIX shell is the shell actually designed for use with HP-UX.

I think its an environment issue. Try it with a standard user, using korn or posix shell.

SEP?....I think he's saying that he can't type the "@" in the firefox address bar, not at the terminal. Not sure why that would be tho....

Yes, you are right. In the terminal I can type it but not within firefox either the address bar nor any field in the browser....
