    Has anyone else had this problem? When I start typing on the Google search page, it tries, I think, to pop up a window of possible entries, but the window takes over the screen and blocks me from entering text. The page becomes long vertically, allowing it to be scrolled down, and then way down at the bottom is the textbar I was typing in.

    It doesn't seem to happen consistently, but it seems to happen particularly if I type something in and then backspace to delete it.

    This is on a Jailbreaked 1.1.4 iPhone, with < http://www.google.com/m >.

    If anyone else has seen this, is there a fix for this?

    In pictures... starting on the Google Mobile site:

    And typing in works fine...

    Backspace produces this...

    But if I scroll way down in the page, I hit the top navigation bar of Google Mobile and then another screen length down, I find the rest of the page. :confused:

    Thanks! :)

    When entering it pops up with suggestions, but moments before that it blacks out the screen, if you continue typing it returns to normal view with the popup suggestions.

    Operating under normal apple standard iPhone.

    So basically you just have to type a character or two in the dark? What a strange bug (presumably in the javascript?)....
