automati focus on input fields - on screen keyboard always appears automatically

  • I already reported this as a bug but wanted to share that behaviour with the community as well. Maybe someone of you knows a workaround. I use an Acer Switch 3 but might be the same with a Microsoft Surface and similar devices. When i have no physical keyboard attached to the device and I open a website in Opera, Opera gives the focus to one of the input fields of the website and that makes the windows 10 on screen keyboard appear automatically. This can be very annoying. Example: i open youtube.com, Opera gives focus to the youtube search field automatically and on screen keyboard appears. Firefox and Edge dont do that. There the on screen keyboard only appears if i click/touch in the search field actively.
    Has anyone of you encountered the same behaviour and knows a workaround?
    Best regards
