There are two bugs I encountered with this

*I deleted an AP with static settings, later re-created it and the old static settings re-appeared even though they should presumably have been deleted by the 'forget network' feature

*Another time (this one might be hard to reproduce, but someone else might have a better idea) - I was typing in a static IP and the phone seemed to be 'fighting' with what I was trying to enter in the IP address box, constantly overwriting the digits in the IP and replacing it with its own. It was pretty much impossible to type in the IP

(These are both on Aqua fish with

The same on Jolla1

on my Linux box this behaviour can be seen once in a while.

does a reboot of your phone help?

Actually the AP gets not deleted with the "forget network" button, what I have also observed. It just changes the flag "favorite" to false in the "settings"-file.

We can observe this phenomenon under "/var/lib/connman", where all the AP settings are located.

I hope someone with a deeper knowledge of the code will explain why this bug exists.

As a workaround I alway delete the whole folder for the AP (ex.: rm wifi_001122334455_00112233445566778899AABBCCDD_managed_psk )
