When navigating a Web page in tabbed mode (no mouse cursor) and placing the focus on a text field, pressing "Select" or selecting "Edit" from the Options menu does not place the edit cursor into the field on some phone models but submits the form. This known issue has been verified by Nokia Developer.

Tabbed mode is equivalent to the setNavigationEnabled() feature in the Widget Runtime, but it can also be enabled using the <META NAME="navigation" CONTENT="tabbed"> header field on a page.

How to reproduce

Open this Web page in the browser:

<META NAME="navigation" CONTENT="tabbed">
<a href="">Nokia&lt;/A>
<FORM action=""><INPUT name=q></FORM>

and place the focus onto the text field. Pressing "Select" on affected devices opens the Google search page (submitting an empty search) and does not let you edit the text field.


This issue has been fixed in the latest software builds, for example Nokia E90 Communicator 210.34.75 (12-04-2008) and Nokia N95 20.0.016 (28-02-2008).
