Device: LG G4 (Android 6.0), Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (Android 5.0.1), Nexus 5 (Android 6.0.1);
Build: Nightly 56.0a1 (2017-07-04);

Steps to reproduce:
1. Launch Fennec and perform a long tap on one of the bookmarks already added;
2. Tap on Edit -> Mobile Bookmarks -> New; 

Expected result:
"Add new folder" page is displayed with "Name" field in edit mode and user is able to insert characters.

Actual result:
"Add new folder" page is displayed with "Name" field in edit mode and but user is not able to insert characters because the keyboard is not displayed, only after the field "name" is tapped again.

Reproducible only on phones.

On a tablet (Asus Zen Pad, Android 6.0.1), the keyboard appears but the typing indicator is always at the beginning of the text, which forces the user to tap into the field to move it at the end, to be able to delete the text or add something. Is this somehow related to the original bug described here, by not focusing the text field when entering edit mode?
