Master password field in 1Password app doesn't have focus sometimes


After waking my Mac from sleep, I often switch to the 1Password app and unlock it. However, on some occasions (not quite sure why), the master password field in the app window doesn't have keyboard focus, so when I start typing my master password via muscle memory, I get beeps because something else in the app has the keyboard focus (the window itself?). This is annoying: if 1P is locked, I think keyboard focus should always automatically go to the password field. This is not new behavior, I've noticed it on and off since I upgraded to 1P 7 over a year ago.

1Password Version: 7.6
Extension Version: N/A
OS Version: 10.14.6 (18G6020)
Sync Type: 1P

    Hi @foobar!

    Are you able to consistently replicate this? I don't believe I remember this ever happening on my machine, but if you have steps to consistently reproduce this, I would be happy to test them.

  • I am not able to consistently reproduce it, but it definitely happens to me a couple times a week. I think it has to do with clicking on the locked window to bring 1P to the front, but certainly that doesn't happen every time. I guess nobody else sees this?

    Thanks @foobar. I can't say I've seen other reports of this, or seen it myself, but now that I know to do so I'll keep an eye out for this. Please do let us know if you find steps that allow you to reproduce the issue.


  • Here were the steps just now:
    1. Wake MacBook from sleep
    2. Command-Tab to 1P app
    3. Notice that master password field does not have blinking text insertion cursor
    4. Try typing, get only beeps.

    I have just tested these steps on two MacBooks, and the Master Password field always had focus for me when I switched to it. We can certainly keep an eye out in case we see similar reports though, and if someone is able to share steps to consistently reproduce this, we will be happy to continue testing :+1:
