Hi all after upgrading wireshark into ver1.6.8 can't input filter string on Filter as the below alt text

cursor is pointing Filter: but can't insert any character or something else. also after opening a wireshark files, when i click any frame, it's color is shown as gray color but not blue. as i know, on normal operation, frame i clicked is shown as blue background color.

isn't there anyone knows about this?

sounds like the problem in this (unanswered) question:

Maybe a yet undiscovered bug ...

@Ray_Han: Is the behaviour the same for every capture file? If so, please post the following information:

wireshark -v

Then please file a bug report at
