Default Browser Issue?

Anyone else have this issue with their Nexus? If I am on a forum and typing a response, when I type, the screen doesn't follow my typing. Meaning I have to stop typing, then scroll over to make sure I didn't misspell anything. Then when I start typing again it goes all the way back to the left of the forum on the screen again. Even if I manage to put my cursor over where I am typing. I've tried the stock browser and the Dolphin browser, both seem to do it.

Also, is there not an auto spellchecker built into the browsers either? That's another issue I've noticed.

The nexus has javascript problems. I have brought it up on several occassions or several forums. It seems most are just ignoring it.

Any chance the update getting ready to be released would fix this issue? I am on several forums quite often and must say it is really annoying. Quite disappointing.

I agree, it is very annoying. There is one forum I can't use at all because it leaves a page of blank space after the entered text.

I hope there will be a fix for it soon. I submitted a javascript bug report to google, others have as well for different problems with javascript.
I believe the developer of Dolphin HD also submitted a bug report.

Yeah, I know exactly what you're talking about, OP. It's very annoying. It seems to be a bit more manageable in landscape mode though. Another thing that makes it worse is that when you try to place the cursor back somewhere to edit a word, the cursor doesn't stay where you put it and jumps around everywhere which makes it a pain to edit anything. I have to bring up the keyboard arrows (in Swype, not sure if the stock keyboard has arrows to move the cursor) and manually move the cursor to get it to go where I want.

Heh yeah I forgot to mention this as well. I was trying to edit something over the holidays, almost got so pissed and threw my Nexus against the wall. I was pissed...lol.

This is fine as long as you are using this forum. However I am a member of several other forums with various topics that do not have this option. It's been suggested, but still does not fix the issue at hand.

Tapatalk is a forum app that supports many MANY forums. I use it on my XOOM because browser on Honeycomb has the worse lag ever in typing in certain kind of webpages, like forums.
It doesn't help with non-forum pages, but it's at least a work around for forums.

I was hoping this would all get addressed in ICS.

Im having different issues with my browser, i probably should not term it an issue I just don't know how to do it and have searched the net for the last hour with no luck.

I have saved the wrong password and user name into the browser and like an idiot got the browser to remember the username and password. Now im trying remove the wrong password and username but have no clue in doing so.

Anyone know where the password manager (or work around) is on the galaxy nexus stock browser?

Im on 4.0.1

I don't know if you have figured this out yet but it's pretty simple. Open the browser pull down the page so the minimize and menu options come up. Select the menu option(three vertical squares) and then settings. Select Privacy and Security and then scroll all the way to the bottom. Clear passwords is the option you want. I'm on 4.0.3 but I think it's the same.

I find this quite annoying also. Almost as annoying as trying to use the "Search this Thread" feature at the top. You know the one that opens a search box that disappears before you can start typing.

The 4.0.4 ICS update fixed this for me. I don't have a problem in JB either. What browser are you using? I use Chrome mostly but see no issues with the stock 'browser' either.

stock browser as well. I also get the problem with the search function, but even bigger problem i get with it is after the search box disappears my keyboard fails and dooesnt type anything. it happens allot actually and have to completely close my browser to get it working. it happens in the stock text app aswell. on top of that sometimes I'll be typing and letters I'll type will automatically backspace themselves. it all happens with stock keyboard and Swype.

Well the search box is still a problem but I never have a keyboard issue. Not sure if the search box is an android problem or a coding issue.
