Steps to reproduce:

1. Open page which has big text area (i.e. webmail when writing text in mail message content, 4 or more lines - check upper screenshot of an example).
2. There is so many text that text area is scrollable (mandatory condition).
3. Make sure that keyboard is over or partially over text area (check lower screenshot of an example).
4. Try to press key on the keyboard that is over text area (i.e. it can be letter 'E' on the lower screenshot).

Actual results:

Letter will be written in place where the key was placed (over text area) or keyboard will disappear.

Expected results:

Pressed letter key should be written in place where text cursor is set. Now it is impossible to write any text on bigger text field. Issue doesn't exists if text area is not scrollable - there is less text lines than size of text area.

Issue can be easily reproduced i.e. of adding comment to the article:,nId,1091864

Remember about mandatory condition that there should be more lines of text than there are lines in text box! It has to be scrollable!
