Having used Yliaavanlampi (1.1.2.15) release for a while, I've been wondering if it would be better if the browser search field (text field) wouldn't be by default selected but required tapping before typing. It would bring more space to see all bookmark icons at glance instead of having virtual keyboard on the screen taking its space.

This could be also implemented as user-selectable setting if user prefers using search every time (so this current behaviour seems rational for them).

If you feel that it's annoying to every time close the virtual keyboard, please vote this.

update: still the same in SFOS v2.1.2.3

I agree, it's annoying to close it each time to see my bookmarks.

Yes agree too. In more than 95% I want to open a stored bookmark and not edit the URL itself.

I am fine with the current behavior of having focus by default - but i want keyboard to offer auto-predictions from local dictionary when i want to enter search term and also don't like that whatever i type disappears when the page is loading...i.e. open browser...type url (in the background page is loading)...typed text replaced / appended by loading URL...

Let's see if I still see focus=false as a better default after testing it for a couple of days .. :) Also the option to be able to choose between list/grid bookmark view suggested by another TJC user is good idea, although that I didn't want to experiment with... :)

Overlay.qml;

<                 onOverlayAtTopChanged: {
<                     if (overlayAtTop) {
<                         forceActiveFocus()
<                     } else {
<                         focus = false
<                     }
<                 }
