Fennec/13.0a1 2012-02-29 Device: Motorola Droid Pro ( Android 2.3.3) HTC Desire Z (Android 2.3.3) Samsung Nexus S (Android 2.3.6) Steps to reproduce: 1. Go to about:config. 2. Set widget.ime.android.landscape_fullscreen=0 and widget.ime.android.fullscreen_threshold=300. 3. Go to google.com and set the device in landscape mode. 4. Tap in the text field to bring up the landscape virtual keyboard. 5. Move the focus to the URL bar and open the virtual keyboard there. Expected results: In both cases the VKB is not in fullscreen mode. Actual results: In the text field the VKBis half screen. In the URL bar the VKB is the fullscreen version. Notes: -- The issue is not reproducible on the Firefox Mobile Beta XUL
We're using a completely native text box for the urlbar, so we're likely not reading any gecko prefs in that case, and I'm not sure we want to be.
I'm not sure if our URL bar should be checking the config prefs, BUT I do think the fullscreen landscape keyboard is a bad (and ugly) experience.
Based on comment #3, sounds like UX input is needed here.
based on comment #0, i am pretty sure this bug is invalid. Chris?
dougt, ibarlow says the Awesome Screen should show the VKB in landscape mode. We don't want to obscure the top-sites/bookmarks/history lists, so the landscape VKB should be non-fullscreen.
I'm marking this bug as invalid because I think we are deprecating widget.ime.android.landscape_fullscreen. We plan to default to non-fullscreen landscape keyboard soon, so your preference will become the new default. :)
