I'm on a web page on my Android phone. When I select a text input, the browser scrolls (about a quarter-screen every 10 seconds). I don't know what causes this -- it doesn't look like any keys are stuck.

Further, it cancels the on-screen keyboard, so it's very hard to type.

This is highly bothersome. Can anyone help me before I destroy my phone out of pure aggravation?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Can you provide some more info? What phone? Are you using the stock browser? – Bryan Denny Feb 14 '11 at 20:56
Is it only one webpage? – Matthew Read Feb 15 '11 at 2:31
@Matthew Read: No, every webpage. – Charles Mar 3 '11 at 16:33
Have you tried using different browsers like Firefox, Dolphin etc etc – mlevit Apr 21 '11 at 0:55
This almost sounds like it should be a bug report or a call to the device manufacturer. Have you tried factory resetting the phone? – Jake Basile Apr 21 '11 at 18:35

Same issue on an HTC Desire (Android 2.3.3)

I had a crazy scrolling when tapping a text input field (the field get the focus but was scrolled out of the screen) and even worst: when entering values from the native keypad, each keytap was creating an arbitrary scroll..

After seeing this article I looked for some specific -webkit-transform tags and after removing them the issue is gone!

The lines were not even used, it was leftovers from previous attempts staying aside in a css file!!!
