    Simple question. When im on a website and i need to enter text why doesnt my keyboard load underneath the page instead of on top, if the page is only small and i cant scoll down i literally cant see what im typing.

    facebook is a good example if i try to comment on a status then my text box is at the very bottom of the page, i click the text box and my keyboard appears over my text box, as im the bottom of the page i cant scroll down any further in order to see what im writing.

    Im not here for a fix (unless there is one) i just wanted to ask if this annoys anyone else and to see why this hasnt ever been dealt with or is there a specific reason this has to happen. I love my android devices as much as anyone....this just frustrates me. I use dolphin browser btw but iv tried a few all with the same results.

    I assume you are in portrait mode at the time. If so, can't you just scroll the webpage that you see above the keyboard? (FYI, I don't use browser)

    That doesn't happen to me. I use the Facebook app instead of the web page. What keyboard and phone are you using?

    Haven't had that problem except in some forum sites, and then rendering depends on the engine the browser uses, which means it may work properly on one browser, but wonky in another.

    What browser do you use?

    Chrome used to glitch out on me this way but that was over four versions back. Iirc an update fixed it for me. You'd try to type and instead of the page scrolling up to make room for the keyboard, the keyboard overlapped the text box, it was also an issue posting replies to AF

    An app that makes the site a horrid mobile version lacking half the functions, based on the pay app TapaTalk.

    Yup. I only use the full site to change my details or vote in polls. The app is far faster and easier to navigate imo :)
