(This is about the default Jolla browser.)

Sometimes when you type in a textarea or input field in the browser, the backspace key doesn:t work properly: the character is deleted, but it's still displayed in the field and only goes away when you type a new letter.

Thanks for reporting this. I haven't seen this before and haven't so far been able to replicate this issue. Do you know a specific site/text field where this is happening? Also, is this with or earlier Sailfish release?

I've seen it in and, I haven't had any earlier updates. It mostly happens on textareas on any site, and most prominently appears when you delete the first letter of a word.

I can try to record a video of it if that'd help.

@Venemo Yes, thanks. Video and site URL would help. We know some cases where something like this happened on and we fixed those. On I haven't yet seen this.

@veskuh - Basically you delete a character with backspace, but it doesn't disappear from the textarea, only when you press a new letter. Tried to record a video (unlisted on youtube): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6C_4qzuvwzE - it happens most often with the first letter of words (as demoed on the video), but it can happen with other letters too. It doesn't happen always.

@Venemo Thanks for nice demo video! Yep, I'm writing this with Jolla and I am able to replicate the problem now.

This issue has been solved since that time, at least I haven't seen it for a long time.
