Adding webbrowser-app as that's where the webapp container comes from (I think).

After a bit of digging seems this is the only place it is happening, the input field is running some sort of script so I assume that might be where the issue lies. This can be inspected if you use chromium on desktop and point it too m.here.com.

I have confirmed the bug though.

I can confirm the issue, which also exists when pointing the browser application to http://here.com.

I’ve used the inspector to extract the relevant bit of HTML from the login page on my phone, which I’m attaching here.

I can’t reproduce the issue with just that standalone bit of HTML. The surrounding page and scripts play a part in that issue.

summary: - The keyboard is not shown when entering HERE account.
+ OSK doesn’t pop up on HERE account login page

Interestingly, if I type http://account.here.com in the address bar and validate, the OSK pops up when focusing the username/password fields.

The same happens if I first reproduce the bug per the original instructions, then close the browser app, then open it again. The account page is restored, and focusing the fields pops up the OSK as expected.

Olivier Tilloy (osomon) wrote :

This is not specific to here.com: I can reliably reproduce the issue with a test HTML page that has a hyperlink (with target="_blank") to another page with any input field, e.g.:

  <a href="http://start.ubuntu.com" target="_blank">test</a>

Clicking that link opens a new tab, but focusing the search field in that new tab doesn’t bring up the OSK.

This seems to be an oxide issue, I can reliably reproduce on my phone with the following minimal QML scene:

import QtQuick 2.4
import com.canonical.Oxide 1.12
WebView {
  id: root
  Component {
    id: webviewFactory
    WebView {
      anchors.fill: parent
  onNewViewRequested: webviewFactory.createObject(root, {"request": request, "visible": true})
  Component.onCompleted: loadHtml('<html><body><a href="http://start.ubuntu.com" target="_blank">test</a></body></html>')

Will this also fix bug #1441547 then?

Or at least fix bug #1588493 ?

And is it the fix for #1591457 ?

This doesn’t seem to fix bug #1441547. Will look into that one.
Bug #1588493 is a duplicate of this one indeed.
And bug #1591457 might be a duplicate of this one, please see my comments/question there.
