I just got my Mac Pro. It came with one of the old keyboard (white ones).
When I first set up OS X, I’m almost sure the numeric pad worked just fine in Safari (I think I used it in Safari).
However, since yesterday morning, it stopped working—in some apps. Pressing the keys on the numeric pad now simply does nothing in these apps, though it still works fine in other apps.
So far I’ve concluded that apps where it doesn’t work are: Safari, Finder, Mail, System Preferences, Cyberduck, iWork, CS3, Speed Download, QuickSilver.
Apps where it does work are: Firefox, Thunderbird, Opera.
Anyone have any ideas as to why this is? Perhaps to do with whether an app is Carbon or Cocoa or something? (Grasping at straws here)
