    as per the thread title, mac msn on my macbook has an extremely annoying habit of losing focus of my chat screens after hitting the 'enter' key.

    i'd type a message, hit 'enter' then the window would lose focus and require me to click on the window again before i can continue typing.

    does anyone have a fix for this frustrating problem?

    i just happened to stumble upon the solution to this by accident.
    i'm not sure why this was a solution but uninstalling safari 4 beta and rolling back to the previous version solved this issue.

    The Safari 4 beta includes a version of WebKit which causes this issue. Later versions of WebKit have fixed this. You need to uninstall Safari 4 to get Messenger:Mac to work correctly again. There's plenty of other threads here with more details.
