Nobody claimed this at an OLPC triage meeting - it might not be fixed for 13.1.0.

I added a new comment on this issue on WebKit: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=84875

I found the correct bug report (on WebKit) that deals with this specific issue:

https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=34285

Simon, Daniel: I'd like to let you know about the state of this issue, that's why I'm CC you.

I've found a bug on the GTK version of WebKit that has to do with this issue (see my previous comment). There is a patch on the webkit ticket but it mention some security concerns. Should we move it out from 0.98?

  • Keywords triage added

I think this one is important, I bumped into it myself #4207 when trying to finish my test case http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Features/Touch/Testing#File_a_bug_in_bugs.sugarlabs.org

This one should be bumped up in priority.

Building webkitgtk3 with upstream patch to see if that fixes the issue: http://arm.koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1250647

Ok, I just verified that the issue is on the WebKitGtk side.I just logged in to the bug tracker in ebook mode to comment :)

comment:12 Changed 7 years ago by erikos

I commented on the upstream bug. Looks like a shame to not have this fixed, especially because there is already a simple patch and things got stuck in the review loop at one point.

comment:13 Changed 7 years ago by erikos

  • Keywords upstream added
  • Milestone changed from 0.98 to 1.0

This can only be solved upstream.

I did another nag: http://lists.webkit.org/pipermail/webkit-gtk/2012-November/001300.html

Moving this one out, as it is not in our hands. I will keep on nagging.

This is reported as a critical bug in Maliit, too:
https://bugs.maliit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=89

Instead of reporting the bug against Webkit, we had chosen to report it against the browsers itself:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=749123 (Firefox)
https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=125161 (Chromium)

That didn't have much success either, however.

On the Maliit mailing list, this issue is coming up again, but this time it's not working with *any* input field in web views:
http://lists.maliit.org/pipermail/maliit-discuss-maliit.org/2013-June/000330.html

Christian Dywan provided a patch here, but it's over 2 years old by now:
