Confluence 3.5 in Safari Mac sometimes gets into state where every click opens file browser

I'm not sure what causes it, but every now and then a confluence page (view, rich edit, or wiki edit) will get into a state where any page click on that page (doesn't occur in pages in other tabs) brings up the Safari image browser for selecting an image. I have to hit refresh to fix it. Am I accidentally typing a shortcut that causes this? Anyone else experience this? I am on Safari 5.0.5 on Confluence 3.5.1.

This issue has been resolved in Confluence 4 so the solution is simply to upgrade.

I have the same thing happening to me, Safari 5.0.5 and both Confluence 3.5.x and the 4.0 preview. This is especially annoying when you just finished a new page and want to save it. Work around it by tabbing to the label field and press enter.
I am heavily using both Safari and Chrome for testing, this never happened in Chrome. Looks to be limited to Safari / Confluence combo.

It's funny you mention that, because it just started happening to me on the Confluence documentation site. If I try to scroll the page or navigate in any way, I get the Open File box.

Very weird.

Weird indeed. You guys may want to check Safari's shortcuts agaist Confluence's shortcuts to try and narrow it down a bit.

Please update the thread in case you come across a cause/solution.

Hope it helps.
