User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Mobile; rv:41.0) Gecko/41.0 Firefox/41.0 I can't seem to focus the search input area in foxcasts app which makes it not usable.
Whiteboard: [bzlite] → [bzlite][triagr]
So, this is def. a bug, likely in the app. For whatever reason, the search input never receives focus. It's possible there's a subtle Gecko bug here, but it would be good for the app author to take a look. Being an app, this wouldn't live in Tech Evangelism::Mobile, the closest thing is probably Preinstalled B2G Apps. Doug, what's the usual process to track down an app author? Is there someone to ping?

Heya, I'm the developer of Foxcasts. I've received a few bug reports about this all from people running B2G on Sony Xperia Z3s. I'm unable to replicate it on my Flame or the emulator. Thoughts?
Search in Foxcasts works for me in the simulator and on my Flame as well.
Ah, that's good feedback Garrett and Robert. This means it's probably a (device-specific?) Gecko/Gaia bug, and not something in your code.
I saw this over the weekend with the Z3c. Never had a problem on Flame. Very frustrating. Needinfo me if I can help debug, Garrett.

See also https://github.com/choorp/foxcasts/issues/6 FWIW, I'm able to open the keyboard by manually focusing the element in devtools: document.querySelector('#app_mainView_search_query').focus();
If it's an app bug, it might be in the enyo js framework. The code sets 'defaultFocus: true' on creating the input but the enclosing <label> element gets the 'onyx-focused' class, not the <input> itself. https://github.com/choorp/foxcasts/blob/master/source/views/Search.js#L13 The disaster is that not only does it not get focus when the panel is opened, but tapping doesn't focus the element either.
Is there any way I can run this B2G without a device? I notice everyone seems to be using Z3s. I can run FirefoxOS on my Flame and the emulator, but this issue doesn't occur when using those.
Firefox OS is not being worked on
