In comment form text boxes, it says “Write a comment.”, which is supposed to disappear as soon as you start typing but it doesn’t. The comment text overlays " Write a comment " and it’s difficult to see the comment text to check spelling, etc.
I’m using opera browser on android. I can’t say when this started exactly. Maybe 2 weeks ago or maybe less. It worked as expected before that.
Hi Brian, it sounds like a specific “opera browser on android” bug. Comment fields use – now – very common and standard placeholder attribute. It should be handled by each browser and just disappear there is some text in the field.
One more thing. Opera mini is a java based app that relies 100% on operas servers to request, deliver and render pages. Opera mobile is WebKit based so it should handle html5 the same as chrome, safari and the others.
