Get focus in a Text Box

I have some text boxes in the footer of a data grid to
allow a user to add a new record.

For some reason to get the focus in to the text boxes you
can only click on the far left of the box if you click
anywhere else within the text box nothing happens.

Does anyone know why this may be?

I have some text boxes and I would expect the user to be
able to mouse click anywhere within the text box to be
able to start typing within the text box.

For some reason you can click anywhere on the border of
the text box and the cursor will appear in the text box
ready to start typing, but if you click in the white space
where you type nothing happens.

Thanks for any help.

Okay, just to make sure, we are talking about an "input type=text" textbox
here, right? That is, you may be using a Web Server Control TextBox, but on
the client, it renders an "input type=text" textbox, correct? And we are
talking about the HTML document in the browser, correct? If that's the case,
I'm kind of puzzled, as the behavior you describe is certainly not typical
for a textbox. What browser are you using?
