It's my first time here. I may come to the wrong forum, if so please transfer the thread to the right place.

I use a browser called avant browser.Since upgrading to java 7, I find it's impossible to enter characters into the input box implemented by java when I use avant browser. Latest version is avant browser 2012 build 180, but the same problem exists in previous versions of avant browser as well if using java7. Stepping back to java 6 can solve the issue. Is there any way to use java 7 in avant browser? Thank you in advance.

Here is a site with the problem input box in which I can't input characters:

This is more than a problem with just the avant browser. See my post below that shows it is also a problem for Mac Mountain Lion users on all browsers. Hopefully Oracle will fix this soon.
