A widget that uses a textarea field (or text input field) crashes the browser when the field is edited. This known issue has been verified by Nokia Developer.

How to reproduce

The known issue can be reproduced with the following example code:

<title>textarea bug</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
function handleOnload() {
<body onload="handleOnload();">
<textarea id="editor"></textarea>
<li> Press enter to make the control editable </li>
<li> Enter any text </li>
<li> Press up/down arrows to leave the edit mode </li>
<li> Bam ! </li>

The complete Symbian Web Runtime widget is available here:

The browser also crashes when the cursor navigation mode is enabled and you move the cursor over the field and start entering text without pressing Enter first.


This is a known issue in the S60 3rd Edition, FP2 Beta SDK emulator and is expected to be fixed in the final release.
