Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:13.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0.1
Build ID: 20120614114901

Steps to reproduce:

1. Opened Firefox on my Droid 4 running Android 4.1.2
2. Tapped the location bar/awesome bar
3. Started typing. I used the arrow keys (left & right arrow) to try and correct mistakes


Actual results:

Focus was lost from the text input area and the "Top Sites," "Bookmarks," and "History" tabs cycled focus instead.


Expected results:

The text caret/cursor should've been repositioned to the left or right, as it's a text entry area. As it is currently is non-intuitive, is inconsistent with all other Android apps. It will be encountered by anyone using not just a hardware keyboard, but anyone who has a 3rd-party software keyboard that has arrow keys.

This might be fixed on Nightly. Can you verify? (http://nightly.mozilla.org)

Woo! You're right, Aaron. It is fixed in Nightly. As long as the focus is set in the text area you can use the cursor keys to modify the URL. Thanks for the quick response.
