Inputting text.

When trying to type text in the box to post on my Blackboard for school or even typing in text to update my status for Facebook on my Edge I am unable. The box is highlighted orange around the box but no curser will show up. I can't even get the keyboard to pop up. I can do these things from my Android phone I think I could even do it before the big update. Is it just me? Typing works in most other places just not some.

Point with your stylus or fingernail in the box. The cursor and keyboard will come up. Works for me every time.

I occasionally have the issue. With the box highlighted in orange click menu button to popup the keyboard.

I've tried both those things. The keyboard will not show up no matter what. Its like when I tap the box it acts like I would be able to type there the keyboard even pops up real fast but then the green loading bar pops up for a split second then just can't type there. Its really decreased the amount of things I can do with my Edge online like my homework.

Are you using the standard keyboard or an alternative? Some apps do not like the replacement keyboards. If so try changing your input method to Android keyboard.

I've run across the odd page or two where the text input gadget is treated by the edge as some odd kind of button. My wild guess is that there is some kind of unsupported java or flash wheeliebob connected to the Text box, so this is the best fallback behavior the edge decides to do.

YES that's how it acts. I tried every bowser and opera mini 5 works. Thanks ken for helping me find the one that runs full screen.
