    Hi guys, just recently I updated to IOS 6.0 and now on some websites I am getting keyboard issues. For example, I use a chatroom website to trade stocks and when I go to click on the line to type the keyboard comes up and as soon as I go to type the keyboard closes so that I cant even type, the keyboard just wont stay open. Before when using IOS 5.1.1 when I first bought this Ipad 2 This website worked perfectly but now I cant even use it since updating to IOS 6.0. I powered down the ipad, I tried using different browsers, I even did a factory restore in Itunes and nothing works and so I have contributed this problem to bugs in IOS 6.0 I guess?? Has anybody else experience the keyboard closing like this and does anybody have a solution?? Thanks and I look forward to a response. I will provide more details if somebody can help me out.

    This can happen when the website has not downloaded completely. Often there is some dodgy advertisement that has hung, making you think that the page is open when in fact it is not.

    If I undock the keyboard and put it up in the middle of the screen it seems to work....but then I have to deal with a keyboard in the middle of my screen which I do not like. Also If I split the keyboard it works as well, but the regular typing keyboard at the bottom of the screen does not want to stay open

    type in a name and click enter room, then see if it lets you type or if it shuts down your keyboard

    Shuts down the keyboard before I can type a single letter. So it's not your iPad, at least.

    Could be. iOS 6 has had some strange effects. Even the iPF app is affected. We never used to have to hit return to send a post. Now we do. Sorry I couldn't help.

    Yes, I notice I cannot hit send when posting (send button is grayed out) unless I quote the post to which I am responding.

    You don't need to quote (unless you want to). Just tap Return once, and the send button will light up.


    I sent a bug report to Apple last night. This is one of the things I mentioned.

    After installing IOS6, I had several instances of a missing space bar on the keyboard. In each case, the space bar reappeared after closing the keyboard and reopening it.

    I for one would be happy to hear from you privately if you DO manage to downgrade back to 5.1.1! This so-called upgrade has royally
    f@@@ed me up, and I am not an expert user so have spent an inordinate amount of time trying to get back to the ease with which I used to operate this thing.....

    I'm afraid that, for the present, there is no way for you to downgrade to iOS 5.1.1.
