    In Google and some other websites, the keyboard will not come up.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Is there a fix for this?

    Thanks.

    Menu -> Settings -> Language and Keyboard -> make sure Android Keyboard is checked.

    This doesn't seem to take me to the place you specify. It doesn't take me to "Android Keyboard."

    That's for the Droid. I see you have an Eris. Sorry, I don't know what your settings are. :unsure: Maybe if you look around in settings - there should be something there! Good luck.

    If you long press the text field and select input method does it give you an option fir a keyboard? If it does and you select it do you still not get an on screen keyboard?

    No, I do not get a keyboard "popup" when using the browser. For example, I go to Google and select the search box to type in a search word, but no keyboard comes up. Or, if I bring up Facebook via Internet rather than the App, it won't let me enter my Login or Password. It highlights, but no keyboard. It works fine for texting, email, etc.

    FYI, it did work at one time. Possibly stopped working after the 2.1 upgrade????

    Well, I decided to download another browser and that works fine. I did go back to the default Internet browser and it sort of works again, but still not working consistently. I'll just stick with the new browser. Thanks for your help!

    I had the same problem. I just turned off my Droid 2, took out the battery for a minute and put it back in and rebooted. Works fine now.

    This happens for me too since the last update. It's annoying when i want to comment on fb. It's not all the time but most times. If anyone has a fix besides factory reset please share.
