Bug Description

This is a follow-up bug to

The keyboard layout issue has been fixed, but there are still problems to login with U1.

Further analysis showed that there are 2 remaining problems:
1. the css of the login page provides a layout not adapted to the screen size of the device
2. this erroneous layout forces the web view and OSK into a situation where touch evens "leak" into the webview, whereas they should stay and be synthesized within the OSK region

#1 is being addressed, but #2 still seems interesting to fix, in case other web sites exhibit the same layout problem.

It appears #2 is a bug in the UITK, for which I filed bug #1236360. I’ll close this one as invalid.

I was too prompt to discard this bug as invalid. As it turns out, the browser doesn’t use the anchorToKeyboard property of the MainView component, it re-implements it. Both implementations are very similar though, and as a result are affected by the same bug, but it has to be fixed both in the UITK and in the browser itself.
