Default 9860 (and 9810 before it) won't delete text

Please Login to Remove!

When I'm using the native web browser, if I go to a web page like Yahoo mail and start typing an email in the web page (this also happens with other web pages) and I make a mistake and want to backspace to delete some of what I typed, it won't delete. It just moves the cursor to the left and doesn't delete anything. It will only delete with the backspace once you hit the far left border and it can't backspace anymore...then it will start deleting. Know what I mean? This works fine in the Opera browser (using backspace to delete) but not in the native BB browser. Any ideas? This happened with my 9810 and now with my 9860.

Backspace works fine in the built-in email, writing in notepad, text messages etc. Only in the web browser does it not work right.

Backspace does not function on all browser pages. I use my touch pad to move the cursor back. Not the best but it does work. Try doing it via the touch screen.
