Description

2 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64; rv:46.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/46.0
Build ID: 20151224030228

Steps to reproduce:

On my Acer Iconia Tab W500 (similar to a surface pro, using a bluetooth cover keyboard) on Windows 8.1, touching an input element pops up the OSK even when in about:config the keyboard is shown to be active;

ui.osk.debug.keyboardDisplayReason;IKPOS: Keyboard presence confirmed.
The other *osk* settings are default (though TabTip.exe is bold, but I guess that's expected)

First noticed this on Firefox 43.0.* (32bit). Just downloaded the 64bit Nightly; 46.0a1 (2015-12-24)

I've found this bug list https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=1211234%2C1228298%2C1227930%2C1227925%2C1227095%2C1226522%2C1226148%2C1226145%2C1224605%2C1211234%20&list_id=12757165
But some investigation was finished, so decided to create a new bug.


Actual results:

Focus an input by touching it: the on-screen keyboard appears


Expected results:

Focus an input by touching it: the on-screen keyboard should not appear (certainly not after the first time)

Alex, is this still an issue for you on your hardware? I haven't observed this issue with latest Nightly 51.0a1, 20160810030202 on Win10 Surface Pro.

Oh, how easy it is to forget about something.

Well, I've upgraded to Windows 10 since. So I'm not sure what fixed it. But I haven't noticed the issue for a long time. I keep thinking that I found some different issue where I changed an about:config setting to prevent the keyboard from popping up. But I guess that's a false memory.

So no, not an issue anymore.
