KitKat 4.4 :: Android Browser - Cannot Select Third Menu
Feb 25, 2014
I log onto a secure website at work. When I log on there is a menu where you select a topic, a further menu slides out and you select another topic from a third menu that slides out. I cannot select the third menu because as soon as I try to click on the second menu I am taken back to the first menu. I have tried this using Chrome, Firefox and the Android browser on my Nexus 5 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. The same website works perfectly with my Safari on my iPhone 4 and iPad.
While browsing, I often like to open a linked page in a new window, so do this via long pressing the link. However, it seems to me to be totally random whether long pressing a link brings up the context menu (which is what I usually want), or goes into text selection mode.
How do you control over which of these two actions occurs when long pressing a link?
I recently switched from iPhone to nexus 5.On the iPhone long pressing gave the options to copy and paste single word or whole paragraphs. In SwiftKey on the nexus,long pressing brings up a blue pointer that gives me just the option to delete the word before it. I can't see any way to select a line of paragraph, then copy and paste it.
This little web page runs fine on my desktop but when selecting the area with a G-1 Android device (select box that says statewide..) the data refreshed with the requested data in the table but the text in the select box does not change,,, the other select boxes (month and year) work fine.. Fwiw the data is still rough and so is the gadget... I've rebooted and restarted the g-1 to no avail.. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4303088/gadgetdraftok.html
The broader question, i guess, here is how to debug a web page on any android browser? we don't have a firebug equivalent..
Further I confirmed the same bug in the Moto Cliq browser (also old still a 1.5) very strange every once in a while the G-1 operates correctly, but I can't figure out how to get it to do it, just that every once in a while the select shows in the window when selected and the data refreshes..
I have verified that this seems to be a verified bug in the early browsers... so now I'm trying to figure a work around, I added setFocus on the select box but it is ignored on the Android G-1 *New info* I actually used this test tool from W3schools try-it site and it demonstrates the non-behavior in just a few lines.. http://www.w3schools.com/js/tryit.asp?filename=tryjs_focus i.e. it works fine on desktop but does not give focus when on phone.. anyone have a work around idea? ( I figured setFocus would be my silver bullet but sadly no)
I have three select boxes on the app so I need to display the selected info...as the selection is served.. not just initialization. FWIW the behavior seems to be on select boxes that have the selection dynamically loaded,, when I finish all three boxes will need dynamic loading now only the area box is dynamic, year/month are coded and so work.
Okay, so I know that Google changed the way we choose our keyboards/input methods in ICS, so instead of long-pressing a text-area, we can pull down the notification menu, and choose "select input type"...
However, when I'm typing something while within the default Internet browser, I can't see the notification bar, nor can I find a way to switch input methods... I generally use Swype as my default keyboard, but sometimes need to switch to the stock keyboard. How to accomplish this without leaving the browser?
Is there a way to add common system setting into the notification pull down menu?
On my old Samsung Galaxy S3, when you swipe down from the top of the screen and pull down notifications, at the top above notifications are buttons for common system settings to access (in order they are: Wi-Fi, GPS, Sound, Rotation, Bluetooth, Smart Stay, Airplane Mode, Power Saving, Hands-free mode, Screen Mirroring)
This was very useful because was easy to quickly access key functions. For example "1) swipe down and 2) press WiFi to turn on/off" or "1) swipe down and 2) press GPS to turn location on/off".
On my new Nexus 5 this functionality does not exist. When you swipe down to see notifications, key system buttons are not present. Instead there is a single system button in the upper right corner which you need to press to for common system settings (Brightness, Settings, WiFi, Mobile [ATT/Verizon], Battery, Airplane Mode, Bluetooth, Location)
This means to access common system settings requires an extra step. For example "1) swipe down, 2) press system button and 3) press WiFi to access WiFi page"
Is there a way to put these common system setting into the notification pull down menu?
normally I have sync turned off to prolong battery life but it also removes the capability to see the desktop bookmarks while in Android's Chrome browser. I thought the bookmarks were stored locally and then synced back when sync turned on.
To see desktop bookmarks I have to flip the sync on do my thing and then flip it back off when I'm done browsing.
Here's what I'm attempting to do. I have a menu and when a user selects a particular option in the menu I want the browser application to open and display the web page. However, I cannot seem to do this. My application uses a TabWidget to display its content (which works perefectly) but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to open a link into the browser. I have tried adding a WebView to the TabWidget (but when I request it from the view by findViewById(...) I get a null.
I've also tried creating a separate view and performing a setContentView(...) and then I get an exception. I've also tried using an intent I've seen demonstrated on this group. It seems like this should be fairly easy, but I must be missing anything. I've looked at the sample apps as well as the Apps-for- android samples and have followed them to the T, yet still to no avail I cannot get the browser to open (or anything like that).
I need to add an action in the Context Menu that pops up after a Long Press of a Link in the Browser (the one that has 'Open','Open in new window','Bookmark link','Save link', etc.)As a result of choosing my action it should call my service and etc.I don't want my app to overwrite all the context menu of the browser but only add an action to it.I haven't found any information on how to do this. Is it possible?
In almost all browsers (except chrome) I can't use file browsers. For example, if I wanted to attach a picture to this post I can't. I can click manage attachments, but when I choose "choose fie", nothing opens.
It used to work, so I think it's something to do with 4.4?
I have a galaxy note 3, 4.4 kitkat
Omega rom (which has always worked, but hasn't since 4.4, even on stock rom)
Recently upgraded to the over the air Orange 2.1 for my hero. everything works great apart from all my bookmarks have disappeared from the menu in the browser. the files are still on the SD card, how can i link the browser to this folder?
Since upgrading to ICS I seem to have lost the settings option (the 3 vertically aligned dots). Neither do I have the quick controls appearing. It is most noticeable in the browser since the ability to add bookmarks, reload a page, move to prev or next page etc//Other applications may also be suffering from this defect, but it hasn't bothered me (yet).
I'm trying to implement a Select All menu item for a ListView in a ListViewActivity. The relevant parts of my ListViewActivity: public class MyListViewActivity extends ListActivity browsed around stackoverflow.com and the google; the above is something that should work. But it isn't. setSelection(i) appears to be the method I want to call on ListView but it's not working as advertised. What am I doing wrong? Is this even possible on Android in code?
New to Android and starting to work on file mgmt. I set up some subfolders on my SD card for pictures. I have been moving pictures from one folder to another, but I can only move one at a time. Is there a way to select multiple picture files and move them to another folder (like "Select All" with Windows)? This is the sequence I've been following: Use the Edit Icon in the Astro taskbar, select Move, then going to the directory folder I want to move them, and hit Paste. Moving one file at a time is taking for ever.

I'm trying to add custom menu items in a WebView Context Menu. Unfortunately, my items are shown in the menu of the first web page I load , but then if I load a second page, a long press only shows the standard context menu items. Mine are gone. I've put a Toast inside the code and it is displayed as well on the first loaded page, but not on the second. I'm using the code below:..............
