MWM 2.0 Android - can't edit login field - closed

Tue Dec 16, 2014 7:04 am

When I try to log in to MWM on my galaxy nexus, and I "fat finger" my email address, I cannot edit it in the usual way. When I try to click on the mid-text character, the cursor jumps to the beginning or end of the text. Mid-text editing is blocked. I can only edit by deleting from the end of the text to get back to the wrong character. This does not happen in any other app or screen - only in MWM 2.0.

Also, the warning "invalid email address" pops up before "tail-first" editing the line (by deleting from the end) is finished, making editing the email address a troublesome and user unfriendly task. Phone is galaxy nexus Android 4.2.2 Kernel 3.1.31. It also happens on my wife's phone (same model), but it does not happen on

This cursor placement is not happening on later versions of Android - kitkat probably because it's using Chrome as the browser behind it instead of the earlier Android browser. It puts a nice blue arrow where you want to edit the text. I suspect other apps are not web apps like MW Mobile.

Also, not seeing the error appear when backtracking on the email address
