Motorola Milestone :: Long Press Search Doesn't Work With Hardware Keyboard Open

Jun 30, 2010

On my UK Milestone (rooted), long press on the search button only works when the hardware keyboard is shut, when the keyboard is open, long press works the same as a short press.

While looking for a fix for this, I found very little information on the net, so I'm wondering if it's a problem with only selected devices. Can anyone confirm for me if theirs works or not?

I have OpenSearch assigned to long press search, and since I always use the hardware keyboard, I need to close it, long press search, then open the keyboard. It's annoying.

I've looked at editing the qwerty.kl file in /system/user/keylayout, my idea was to try to redefine to search key on the keyboard (between left alt and @) to launch OpenSearch, but it apears that I can only redefine keys to other keys that way, not launch apps.

Motorola Droid :: Contacts Search Doesn't Open Soft Keyboard

Aug 23, 2010

While in the Phone/Contacts app, I LOVE the search button to open the contacts search box. However, when I press the button, it doesn't automatically open the soft keyboard and I have to first press in the input box. Is there any way to make it automatically open the soft keyboard? It's not a major issue, but it's a slight nuisance. I'm running a rooted Droid with Froyo (FRG01B, manually updated).

Motorola Droid X :: Way To Change Long Press Search Behaivor?

Nov 15, 2010

Is there any way to change the long press of the search button behavior on the Droid X? It seems like it's hard coded to bring up voice search. I want to use Rotation Toggle, which can toggle screen rotation on long press of search, but I can't with the Droid X. I am rooted so if the solution requires that, I'm good.

HTC Droid Eris : Drop Down List Of Possible Choices - While Long Press Search Button

Jun 24, 2010

I have a question regarding a feature that just seemed to disappear from Handcent SMS.

Before, when I composed a message in the app or using quick compose (long press search button), there would be a drop down list of possible choices when I began typing in the "To:" field. For example, if I typed "k", it would show names beginning with "k". But now the feature is gone and it really sucks when I want to compose a text.

Does anyone else have this issue? Is it Handcent's problem or a software problem (v2.1 bug?), and does anyone know how to fix it?

General :: Chrome Long-press Context Menu Stopped Working - Can't Open In New Tab

May 18, 2013

I have a Nexus 4 running stock JB 4.2.2.

At some point (not sure when exactly) the long-press feature to bring up the context menu for links in Chrome stopped working.

When I long-press on a link, all that happens is I get a short vibrate, but no menu.

This means that I can no longer "Open in new tab".It's all working fine on my Nexus 7.

Motorola Droid : Virtual Keyboard Sometimes Doesn't Work

Feb 8, 2010

Just wondering if anyone else runs into this problem.... Every so often, I go to type in a message, either on the pop up from handcent, or in the actual program, and no matter what I hit, the keyboard doesn't type anything. I can switch inputs from Swype to Android keyboard and usually it doesnt do anything (though sometimes it starts working again). Sometimes it fixes itself if I leave it alone for a few minutes, but other times it needs a battery pull to fix. It's not a huge deal as it doesn't happen every time i use the phone, but definitely something I wish didn't happen

Motorola Milestone :: Milestone Doesn't Take Permission To Connect To 3G Internet

Sep 8, 2010

I just got a milestone yesterday, and I was fascinated by it. The only thing that kills me, is that it doesn't take permission to connect to the internet. I used to have a Nokia, which always had to take my permission first to connect to 3G internet network.

But with the milestone, it doesn't, and I get charged for every single 1kb used I just lost what is equivalent to $10 USD in the last 5 mins for just trying to open Google and download the SlideME app. is there some kind of hidden tasks that uses the internet or something ?

One more thing, today morning, I opened facebook after recharging my credit balance with 20 USD. And guess what ? They're all gone too for just opening the home page! if I have an active internet connection, how can I close it ?

Motorola Droid :: Long Press + Skips Tracks?

May 4, 2010

While I was roaming around in the App section of the forum I stumbled across this thread. Long press "+" = skip track. One of the people who posted a comment in it claims that by long pressing on their volume rockers, will skip tracks. Does anyone here know if this is true? Apparently it only works with 2.1 and if this is the case, which I can't do cause I am running BB v1 but i am confused cause its in 2.1 even though I rooted under 2.0.1. Can anyone confirm this?

Android :: Redirecting To Market Search URL Doesn't Work

May 19, 2009

To pretty up the URL we have on our site a URL /get/g1. It redirects to our market.android.com/search URL, eg http://market.android.com/search?q=pname:ourappname.

However, going to that link in the G1 browser results in a 404 instead of opening the Market to our app.

Questions: 1. Is this a known issue? 2. Does the browser preprocess links on the page but not intercept them in a redirect?

Android :: Why Doesn't Voice Search Work As Advertised

Aug 15, 2010

I already downloaded the latest voice search app on my nexus one. I can perform some of the voice actions like calling, navigating, maps and internet search, but I can't seem to add alarm, send text message/email, note to self, call businesses or even set alarm. Instead the results give me either google search or voice dialing. Are some of the functions blocked here? Also I noticed in the official guide video the help screen had more options than mine. Is my voice search a more toned down version because I'm in a different region?

Motorola Milestone :: Music Player Exits When Press Home Or Menu Buttons

Aug 25, 2010

I find now that the music player exits when I press either the "Home" or "Menu" buttons at the bottom of the phone if I want to run another application while listening to a song/podcast. Again, this is really annoying. I can't start up a podcast, then text/email someone. The music player exits.

HTC Droid Eris :: Keyboard Doesn't Work With Fast Typing

Jun 13, 2010

I text. A lot. It's very irritating when the keyboard on the Eris can't keep up with how fast I type. I'll be finished with my message, and the last few words take 1-3 seconds to show up, which is fine I suppose. However, when I make some errors, the auto-correct feature doesn't work because apparently my typing speed is too quick for it.

Everything works fine when I type slowly, but that's annoying too.

I barely have any apps besides the stock ones. In running services I only have the calendar, Google Voice, Touch Input, and BatteryTime running. I don't use any app killer, I have animations and haptic feedback turned off. I don't know what else I can do to speed this phone up.

This problem, the lag in switching from portrait to landscape, and the lag with calls is really making me want to sell my Eris and purchase the Incredible, or I may wait until the "Moto Droid X" releases in July....or is that just a rumor?

Motorola Milestone :: Install - Voice Search Missing?

Dec 17, 2009

I received my new Milestone yesterday, and I have to say I am very impressed so far. I got it from Telecom Personal in Argentina. It is like the European GSM Milestone but operates in the 850/1900 UMTS frequencies.
After the long wait and through reading about the droid/milestone I am surprised Voice search/dial are not available out of the box. At first I thought it was not available in Spanish (our native language) but after switching the phone to English it wasn't there either.

Is there a way to install Voice Search ? I wouldn't mind if it work only in English as I can speak the language (sort of ).

Ironically I work for Verizon as a developer offshore and can't get a Droid because there are no operating CDMA networks in Buenos Aires. It is all GSM here.

HTC EVO 4G :: Cant Long Press On Evo?

Jun 29, 2010

i exchanged my phone today do to a faulty microphone. now i got this evo and for example when i text and i wanna hold for a question mark it just puts down the letter and wont let me hold and alot of other things are very unresponsive or move slowly. I actually got the notification bar to stay halfway down which never happen to me cause i think it automatically goes all the way down. I did install a invisible sheild but i dont think that has any effect since most of the water is gone.it was working fine before i installed it tho. i had to turn the device off when the bottom buttons wouldnt respond until i would put it to sleep and then shortly after it go back to not responding then the screen stopped responding. is this faulty hardware?

Samsung Galaxy I7500 : Galaxo 1.6.3 Bugs - Speaker Doesn't Work In Call - Scrolling Contacts By Letter Doesn't Work

I have so far found two bugs in Galaxo 1.6.3:

a) Speaker doesn't work in call (very weak). works well in ringtones etc.

b) Scrolling contacts by letter doesn't work.

Other than that this is a leap forward, especially with the overclock options!

Both bugs, as well as others, fixed in 1.6.3.1 update!

Motorola CLIQ :: Most Apps Don't Work - Snake - Doesn't Work Says Its Paused

Dec 8, 2009

I'm trying to determine whether or not my phone is defective, or if this is a current problem with the Cliq.

Of the apps I've downloaded, only a few of them have worked. Of those few that work, some don't work right. Has anyone had problems with these apps crashing on them, or just not working correctly?

- Nice Battery (see description at bottom of: My Ultimate CLIQ settings (so far))
- WeatherBug (kept showing the wrong location, crashed when trying to change location)
- Snake - doesn't work just says its "paused"
- RingDroid - crashes when I select the "Facebook Pop" button
- Layar - screen is rotated 90 degrees at all times

There have been others, but usually I just uninstall them right after discovering it doesn't work right.

Motorola Milestone :: Default Youtube Widget Search And Upload Buttons Not Working
