You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
1. Enable the portrait mode in the browser
2. Go to a page with a text field (e.g.google.com)
3. Select the text field while holding the phone in portrait mode
4. Type something and hold the phone again in portrait mode and send the text
The text should appear in the text field.
Sometimes the text doesn't show up, other times if you delete a character or
shake the phone a bit the rest of the text disappears.
If you turn the phone to portrait mode while in the Virtual keyboard you'll
notice some flick in the text field or the text will be erased.
Only happens in the browser and only if the portrait mode is enabled.
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52)

For reference, with portrait mode availability being toggled with Ctrl-Shift-O,
I GUESS it won't be a fully supported feature in this release (unless it
default to on rather than off).
Fix would be to allow VKB entry in portrait mode.
This is not reproducible anymore in the internal version 2010.04-4, hence it
porbably has been fixed in the meantime. A future update will include the fix.
Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the
fix will be available to users).
Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).
