Based on the conversation in Bug 844658. Currently, when the soft keyboard is in use, tapping on a text field multiple times or tapping on other text fields, can dismiss the soft keyboard. We should fix that behavior. Since the keyboard covers half of the screen, those random transitions could be annoying. As long as the touch input is still in the text field, the soft keyboard should just stay there.

Summary: Defect - Soft keyboard should not be dismissed as long as touch focus is still in the text field → Work - Soft keyboard should not be dismissed as long as touch focus is still in the text field
Whiteboard: [forms] feature=defect c=context_menus u=metro_firefox_user p=0 → [forms] feature=work
I think the first case might be easier than the second.
