I just tried it on Opera mini on my 9800 worked fine. I went to the text field and it is greyed out so once the cursor is over it you press the trackpad and it selects it the grey turns to white for you to type. Then when finished typing press the trackpad again and your done. Not sure if this is the problem you are seeing. If not I will check my settings and see if they are the same as your.
Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful, and optimistic. And we will change the world. - Jack Layton (1950-2011)
