      Summary

      BUG: WebDirect Tabbing delay between Fields causes odd text input behavior

      Product

      FileMaker Server

      Version

      13.0.1

      Operating system version

      Mac OS X 10.9.2

      Description of the issue

      Entering Text Edit Fields in webdirect served pages has problems when user presses Tab key, but text continues in the same field, which causes user to press backspace to correct misplaced text, but then system catches up and removes text following the Tab instance, inserting it on the correct next field, but now the next field is wrong because the user hit the backspace, believing what he was seeing on his screen.

      Please use Javascript to render pages, which is immensely faster (like Gmail, etc.)

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Visit my page: https://db.mservicegroup.com/fmi/webd#Application

      Expected result

      Immediate tabbing to the next edit field, responsive data entry, more obvious feedback of the active field in focus.

      Actual result

      delayed data entry, user entry problems, active focus field latency, text continues to input in preceding field after Tab button pressed.
