+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #827844 +++

Bug 827844 is fixed now but I can't see any visual difference. Pages still jump around/flicker when the VKB is invoked.

Might be something just in my config, so here it is:
Samsung Galaxy S2
Android 4.0.4
VKB: SwiftKey 3.1.0.377

I also tried the stock Android VKB, same there.

The fix applied in bug 827844 unfortunately isn't a completely reliable fix and may indeed have no effect whatsoever on some hand-sets. We'll use this bug for tracking a more comprehensive fix.

This was discussed between me, kats and BenWa, we thought of a couple of ideas;

1- Don't resize the surface at all when the VKB appears and just alter the Gecko window size to compensate (we'll have to handle rotation, but that's fine)
2- Handle the surface resizing separately from Android layout (I think that was the gist of the 2nd option, I can't recall perfectly)
Same as bug 758614?
