    Has anyone noticed that when you are in the web browser and the phone is at 90 degrees, (full QWERTY keyboard) when you press the search button and then start to type, the information bar pops up on every key press, making the keyboard and search bar jump up and down?

    I checked on my friends Hero which has not been updated and the problem does not exist.

    My Hero is rooted. I'm interested to know if this is a problem on one using the official firmware update.

    I only noticed this during watching videos/youtube.

    Known issue with all 2.73.xxx.x builds. Some users have reported that the behaviour ceases after a day or two.

    Yup, mine does it too and has been ever since i got it (6 months ago!). It is really really annoying but only does it when at 90 degrees and doing the initial web page search ie doesn't do it for subsequent google searches.

    Does anyone know if there is a fix because it is getting to be a pain in the proverbial.

    See if there's a more recent firmware update available for your handset. The issue was rectified with a later generic build iirc and may have filtered down to the carrier-specific updates by now.
