As stated by Andrew the best place to post them is bugzilla, but let me 
go through them a bit.
I think this is intended to be feature rather than a bug. I suppose it 
to maximize efficiency when doing other things in foreground.
I would have liked it to be a user selectable option.

I think this is not a bug or a feature, just a behavior of some web 
sites (particularly Gmail). Whenever I hit reply in Gmail or I just tap 
into the replay textarea I see the keyboard appear (or the thumb one if 
I touched the screen with my fat finger). I noticed that when you tap 
that text area, gmail will execute something that will fill that text 
area with the message you're replying at, quoted.
That's why I wait... I tap the text area, wait for Gmail to fill it (the 
textarea is NOT anymore in focus), and then I tap again in the text area
to make my text appear there.
