    If it is an ESPN forum it is the fault of the 'New Robust' forums they foisted on the users about 4 months ago.

    Have you tried the forum using Opera Mobile? When my Galaxy Tab was new the stock browser had the same problem in many forums, including this one. I use Tapatalk for most forums but Opera was the only one that worked on those not Tapatalk ready

    @ spoiltmom

    I came to these forums because of the very problem you mentioned in the 1st post (no keyboard appears for the reply box in 2 of the forums I visit) and here I see you answer in post #8 but I don't know where you changed the setting to "optimize for mobile"? Was it on your Kindle Fire or the web page or......? Thanks for any advice!
