Default Entering text forms on Browser issues

Please Login to Remove!

Blackberry 8310
v 4.5.047
Using Blackberry browser

Not often, but from time to time I need to enter text into forms on the browser, like the other day when I wanted to check in on line for a southwest flight. I was able to get the conf code and first name entered, but scrolled too far down and then was unable to get the last name in....ugh.

Tried cautiously several more times and even when the text was fully entered - was unable to get the device to PUSH the retrieve or submit button.

I NEVER had these issues until the OS upgrade. It could be me, but I've played with the select mode, view mode, column view, etc.....

Anyone know what I mean? Am I missing something obvious? Any tips or tricks out there?

Thanks!

Doug

You need to update your OS to a newer 4.5 OS. Use this one:

I'll give it a shot...downloading now...even though it has GERMAN text everywhere.

I'm assuming I'm donwloading the 4.5.0.55 firmware upgrade.

I'll search the attached the thread for mentions of browser improvement or fixes...I assume that this will take care of it? Thanks again John!

It does fix the browser text issues.

Yes it DOES! Thanks again.
Easy install, couple more tweaks to make so this looks like I had it, but otherwise, problem solved.

Great site and mods contributing!
