Noticed an interesting bug in Sailfish3 version of browser:

not sure how common this is, but if I access twitter via the browser and attempt retweet w/ comment, the comment field won't accept text input. It seems that the text issue isn't limited to twitter.

Device: XperiaXA2, OS: sailfish3

I have a similar issue with another web site, what I think is happening for some reason the alignment of input fields and the touch surface do not match. I managed to enabled a button in my case by touching the screen about 1cm below the actual button. It only happens with the new browser only.

The same issue is on Sailfish X (Sony Xperia X), v3.0.3.9 when trying to type in the search box on DuckDuckGo.

I was not able to make the keyboard appear no matter where I touched the screen around the text box. Pressing on the search button next to the search box changed its colour, so it doesn't seem to be an alignment issue in this case.
