It's not working either on HTC Desire Android 2.1 with Fennec 1. To resolve this issue, I force Fennec to stop in Application Administrator of Android (but it's not really practical.
There's a pretty easy fix for this. Whenever a textbox is touched/clicked, nsIWidget::ResetInputState() is called. We can show the keyboard there. ResetInputState isn't designed for this purpose though and it's called from a bunch of places, but for an easy fix this one's probably the simplest. I didn't see any problems from simple testing. The patch is Android-only right now.
