#10247 closed bug (invalid)

Pressing the CTRL and any other key prevents .keydown() and .keyup() from capturing events.

I've been working on a library for my game engine Red Locomotive to allow game developers to bind to the hole keyboard. I've been successful, but have noticed a problem with jQuery.

If i press and hold the CTRL key, then any other key, the keydown function stops capturing keydown events. Then when I release the CTRL key the keyup event for the CTRL key never fires.

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a complete reduced test case on jsFiddle to help us assess your ticket.

Additionally, be sure to test against the jQuery Edge version to ensure the issue still exists. To get you started, use this boilerplate: Open the link and click to "Fork" (in the top menu) to get started.

I do see that behavior with key combos that correspond to some browser hotkeys, for example ctrl-n, but not with ctrl-a for example. If the behavior you see is consistent with this description, then it's not something jQuery would be able to fix since the browser is not delivering key data we can detect:

If you write this in pure DOM does the problem persist?
