When Using Fennec on N810 (with physical Keypad Closed) clicked on Link that opens page in New Window (new Tab on Fennec), New Page is loaded but Virtual Keypad opens while page is loading.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. On N810 with Physical keypad Shut, on Maemo Fennec load
2. Click on the link that says "Blog" on the Bottom Right of page.
Observe the loading page.
Actual Results:  
1. page loads.
2. Blog page opens in new Tab on Fennec. Virtual keypad displays during Page loading.

Expected Results:  
1. page loads.
2. Blog page opens in new Tab on Fenenc. Virtual Keypad does not display, Text input was not tapped, so virtual keypad isn't needed.

when I go to it redirects to, which does not have a "Blog" link.  Can you provide the url for the blog page?

What I'm wondering is if there is a text box on the page that gets focus (possibly from a script), in which case the software keyboard popping up is the correct behavior.
I'm able to go through the steps to reproduce just fine, but I don't see the issue with the soft keyboard mentioned by the reporter using build:

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux armv6l; en-US; rv:1.9.3a1pre) Gecko/20090827

Joel, can you verify this?

I see this bug with a beta3 build on my n810.  The question remains is this a bug or not?  I believe it is as there is no text box that has keystrokes go nowhere.
I can reproduce this with beta3 on my n810?  why is this resolved?
ok, on a 20090827 (n810) and 20090828 (htc winmo) this is fixed.
