Description

Steps to reproduce:
- Go to http://people.mozilla.org/~mwargers/tests/forms/autocomplete_forms/autofocus_input.html
- Type 'abc' using the vkb
- Submit the form
- Type 'a' -> form autocomplete popup comes up
- Choose the 'abc' entry in the autocomplete popup
- Press the backspace key to try and delete the 'c' character at the end

Expected result:
- Character 'c' deleted

Actual result:
- Nothing deleted. You need to tap on the backspace key again to get the 'c' character deleted.

Another issue (I guess related):
- Type 'a b c d' in the input, submit form, then type 'a', choose the 'a b c d' entry in the form autocomplete popup, then tap on the backspace key. In that case everyting in the input gets deleted and only the character 'd' remains.

Also weird stuff happening on this contenteditable testcase, while tapping the backspace key on the Galaxy Nexus:
http://people.mozilla.org/~mwargers/tests/contenteditable/contenteditable.htm
Current behavior with Galaxy Nexus and stock VKB:

STR:
1. Enter "cat dog"
2. Press space, then try to backspace to delete the "g" of "dog"

RESULT:
"cat"
I think my comment 2 is describing bug 790631. I can't verify whether the bug described in comment 0 has been fixed until bug 790631 is fixed.
Depends on: 790631
The another issue in comment #0 has been fixed by bug 792928.

Can we re-test this and figure out what is still broken?

This is still broken on Firefox Beta and Aurora, and fixed on Nightly.

We should take a fix for Aurora here.
