1. switch to Swype (long tap on a field and switch the ime to swype)
2. go to
3. go to field : Username: and type some stuff to populate the form fill and hit submit
4. click in the field, type in the first letter of something you typed in step 3
5. hit the delete key to delete all characters in the field
6. hit outside of the autocomplete form fill and the keyboard to dismiss both

Expected: nothing in Username field
Actual: the first letter that was typed in step 4.

1. does not happen with Swiftkey nor default keyboard

I can reproduce this on the Galaxy SII, using latest Nightly Native Fennec.
I don't even need step 3 to reproduce this issue.

This bug needs to be retested after autocomplete is re-enabled by bug 764193.
Depends on: 764193
Form autocomplete has been re-enabled, but I have blocklisted Swype until this and some other Swype IME bugs have been fixed.
I believe the fix for bug 780191 will also fix this Swype bug.
Depends on: 780191
I verified that this bug is fixed in my local build, but I am leaving this bug open because Swype form autocomplete is still blocklisted until Swype bug 755909 is fixed.
Depends on: 755909

Jim is this still "fixed but not fixed"?

I could not reproduce it with Swype on my Nexus 4.
