Repro Steps:

==============

See this example on http://jsbin.com/ligetuheke/1

You can see the source here: http://jsbin.com/ligetuheke/1/edit?html,output

  1. Select the input field by touching it.

  2. Touch the text below the input field.

  3. The caret is now in a wrong position.

  4. Use the on-screen keyboard to enter text.

Expected Results:

==============

By calling event.preventDefault() in a mousedown handler, I expect that the element that received the event will not be focussed.

The focus as well as the caret should thus stay on the element that was focussed before.

Actual Results:

==============

Dev Channel specific:

================

No
