Silverlight 5 doesn't work in chrome from a Mac. Works fine on Windows or from Safari or Firefox on a Mac. jprewitt 1/11/12 1:28 PM
Google Chrome version 16.0.912.75 on Mac OS 10.7.2 with Silverlight 5

I'm not able to type in any Silverlight text box (http://samples.msdn.microsoft.com/Silverlight/SampleBrowser/ClientBin/RTAFormat1.html).  It works fine if I use Safari or Firefox or switch to Windows.

Go to /Library/Internet Plug-ins/ and get Silverlight.plugin
Then, find Google Chrome.app, right click it, show it's contents.
Go to Contents/Versions/(newest version)/Google Chrome Framework.framework/Internet Plug-Ins/
and paste Silverlight.plugin.
Restart Chrome. Silverlight should work now.

Silver light is installed correctly, because everything shows up fine. The problems is that when I click inside of a text box I can't type.

We are seeing the same problem as described in jprewitt's original post.  Silverlight UI shows, but one can't type into textbox.

This seems to have started with updating to Silverlight 5 on the Mac.  We believe it was working fine with Silverlight 4.

Same here.  Developed a Silverlight application and when we upgraded to Silverlight 5, all text input for Apple OSX + Google Chrome (any version) fails.

All other browsers do not have this issue.  Google Chrome on Windows does not have this issue (thank god!).

Same problem here.  "Upgraded" to Silverlight 5 and text boxes don't work with Chrome.  Anyone having success?

I can't figure out how to uninstall Silverlight 5 and put 4 back on.

And the same problem here, I can confirm there were no problems with the previous Silverlight plugin & Chrome for Mac, since the update I can't type in textboxes in a Silverlight environment.

According to Silverlight docs, OSX + Chrome + Silverlight 5 is not a supported configuration.  Go here and click on System Requirements:

Bummer.

En other option is to reinstall and follow these instructions;

Enable or disable Silverlight plug-in

The Silverlight plug-in is enabled by default. You can enable or disable the plug-in at chrome:plugins.

Type chrome:plugins in the address bar.
Find Silverlight:
Click Disable to stop the plug-in from running.
Click Enable to re-enable the plug-in.

I also see this with the current version of silverlight. I'm unable to type into Silverlight text boxes... forces me to go back to Firefox... ugh.

What is Then, find Google Chrome.app, right click it, show it's contents? It doesn't make sense.
