when entering text in a form the cursor often jumps before the entered character

Posted

Samsung Galaxy S3 i747m Firefox 71 and beta(good example, the 7 was placed before the 1, and I had to reposition the cursor) Swype 1.3.5.x (tried with stock aosp keyboard, same result) The cursor often jumps back one position while entering text into a web form. this makes entering numbers and passwords near Impossible. I can reproduce this error regardless of keyboard.

We have made several changes to keyboard input in Firefox 19 and 20. You should be able to find Firefox 19 in the play store as Firefox beta on Friday of this week.
