Within a website the soft keyboard pops up and covers text input field so I cannot see what I am typing

As the title says, on a website with text entry in the lower half of the screen, when selected the soft keyboard pops up and you can no longer see the text field you are inputting.

Other Android browsers manage to "focus" on the correct input field, so it's not an OS restriction and would add considerably to the usability of Firefox.

Thank you for this post, I'm not sure if there is a bug filed for this for Firefox 9 (I know there is one for a future version that is being worked). Can you tell me which web site has this problem, or if it appears on all web sites?

Thanks, Michelle

Hi, and thanks for the reply.

The main website where it causes me problems are password protected work sites so you can't see it for yourself. However I did notice that if I zoom in sufficiently it happened when I logged in to post this :-)
