This issue doesn't occur on the latest Aurora build (20110905). Also I was not able to reproduce it on an earlier Nightly build (20110901).

Possible range:
I see the page in background scrolling up only when I tap in the URL bar no need to pan on it. This is happening when the focus is in a text field on pages like or, please see video:
I think the most likely culprit in that range is bug 680212 (or maybe bug 680441).

What's the status here? We'll need a fix quickly to get this into Aurora.
I run into this occasionally on trunk and Aurora, no reliable STR though
Was playing around a bit, I ran into this twice while playing a video. I loaded the page, zoomed in a bit, started playing the video, and kept going to the awesome screen and back, eventually it triggered the behaviour described

> I run into this occasionally on trunk and Aurora, no reliable STR though

I'm able always to reproduce this issue, if I tap on the URL Bar (in Awesomescreen) and I perform a quick scroll down action.
I can reproduce this all the time, using:
- Focus on of the text inputs on that page
- Then focus the url bar.

I can reproduce this on the latest Aurora.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Fennec
2. Tap on the URL Bar
3. Tap on the Magnifying Glass button
4. Perform a tap between the URL Bar and the Search Engines list

Expected result:
After step 4, nothing should happen. The app remains in Awesomescreen and the Search engines list is still displayed.

Actual result:
After step 4, the app goes back to the main view.

Is this issue related to this bug or should I file another one for it?
