Posted image screenshot
Steps to reproduce:
1. Use an input method that offers word suggestions, e.g. "Android keyboard."
2. Open a page with a text field, e.g. http://people.mozilla.com/~mbrubeck/test/form.html
3. Tap on the text field.
4. Type a letter that matches the first letter of a suggestion.
5. Tap the suggestion.

Expected results: The suggestion appears in the text field.

Actual results: The typed character is removed, the other letters of the suggestion appear in the text field, and the first letters in the text field are underlined to indicate they are part of a composition.

I can reproduce this bug on T-Mobile G2 (Android 2.2) in Firefox 4.0, 5.0a2, and trunk.

I just verified this on both above builds and on nightly it is fixed but on aurora I can still see the problem. Should I reopen this bug?

No, the bug is fixed.

The bug is "tracking-fennec: 6+" which means it is only planned to land in Fx6. If we wanted the bug fixed in Fx 5, that would require landing in mozilla-aurora too.
