When I'm typing text in android apps and start to remove the text, the predictive word input suggests words for text I have typed and I am now removing. Also if I'm holding backspace to fast remove the text, when system suggests words it stops removing text and I have to start holding backspace again. This happened in all android apps i tried. In sailfish apps removing text works without word suggestions.

I have Sailfish Paarlampi and I haven't seen this bug in earlier versions.

I have the same problem.

I tried to type a comment in Opera. The weirdest thing was that I couldn't delete the duplicate entries in the comment and that instead the words added again in the text.

Yes I also have this problem. Whenever I try to correct an error in a word the word gets 'predicted' again which results in an ever worse spelled word. Best solution for me would just be to have the keyboard prediction optional. I have never liked it on any of my phones, and I don't like it on my Jolla either.

I have the problem that whenever I'm removing letters from words aka fixing typos I get the first letter of the word duplicated. Might be related to this? It only started with the update.

I have exactly the same problems as mentioned above. This is quite annoying as I'm using Opera browser and I face this problem every day.
