Browser issue Can't input text, Android browser

Don't know how high a priority this would be. If on Rich Text, the stock browser on my HTC Evo won't bring up the keyboard when touched. I can switch to the other input method and it works but it took me awhile to figure that out. Pretty sure the browser is stock on most Android devices.

The stock Android browser on my Samsung Galaxy S doesn't let me access anything other than the standard editor.

Go http://whatsmyuseragent.com/ on your phone and post what you see. For example my useragent is:

Code:
Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 2.2.1; en-gb; GT-I9000 Build/FROYO) AppleWebKit/533.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile Safari/533.1

I'm surprised that your phone is attempting to show the WYWISYG / Rich Text editor - it should show only the standard text area to Android devices. Could you show me your user agent? You can see what it is by visiting this page: http://examples.kierdarby.com/clientinfo/

I'm assuming the browser is configured to "desktop mode", which prevents us from detecting that it doesn't work (because it does actually work, but the browser doesn't actually allow you to input into the editor).

I checked 'Allow mobile view' after that reading, restarted the browser, now all is well. My setting. Good to know for the future though.
