Typing glitches on the BlackBerry PlayBook
Mainly in the browser on the BlackBerry PlayBook for the past few updates I have had a lot of typing problems. I would go to type and nothing would show up unless I would either swipe up from the bottom and then going back into the app, or unselecting the text box and reselecting it making sure the keyboard wasn't on the screen. Usually I would have to do the first. It has gotten to the point where the PlayBook is no longer convenient to use. Does anyone else have this problem with typing, and does anyone have a fix?

Re: Typing glitches on the BlackBerry PlayBook
I believe that when you start typing in the address bar, every keystroke triggers a search in both the browser's history and the search engine, in order to give you suggestions as you type. Not a bad idea in itself, but obviously not implemented in an optimal fashion (I suspect the current version of the web browser is built with AIR, and hope BB10 will bring core apps that are really native).

I have also had a fair amount of typing problems in the browser, both before and after the latest OS update. I use the Flightaware website a lot and almost every time i try to enter an airline code, flight number or airport code, it either doesn't type anything at all or just the first character.
Also, since the last OS update, the browser seems to be extremely slow and, in the email app, when I try to delete a bunch of emails at once, the app will force close and show an error code 3000 pop-up. Is anyone else out there seeing this?
