Logging into A3 M&B on iPad

When I open the M&B homepage on my iPad, it does not appear to allow me to enter my password in the password box next to where I enter my A3 FF number in the box in the upper right part of the page. The solution, which took me more than a day to discover, is to click and enter the password directly under the FF number, where a funny arrowhead appears. No amount of clicking on what seems to be the right box or hitting go after entering the FF number seems to do anything, while hitting login immediately gives an error message and an offer to reset the password by email after answering security questions.

I have the same issue on both iPad and iPhone. Would be nice if A3 could fix this.

The ipad renders the elements of the webpage slightly off, so the actual password field is not where it looks to be. That makes it hard to tap to get into editmode.
The easiest way to get there is to tap into the Member ID field, and write your number, then tap "next" on the ipad keyboard upper left side. The cursor will move to the right position. Voilą.

So then it would be nice if Apple could fix this, right?

OK, now I see next, but it does not seem to be on the keyboard. On my iPad, it appears on the stripe above the touch keypad.

Thanks folks, you have answered my problem - which I have been frustrated about for the last few weeks!

I have also learned about the "Next" key!!

Havent used the mobile website, but on the regular website (on an iPhone 4) click UNDER the number box. A cursor will show up where the password box is (not where it appears). Enter it there and it should work fine.

I think this is exactly the solution I described in my OP. For the record, this was using the regular Aegean website on an ipad.

This is certainly not a iPhone or iPad "problem". Exactly the same happens on one of my two MacBooks and on one of my two Mac desktops. The funny thing is that the symptoms started, in both cases, when the Macs were already "oldish", briefly before I replaced them with the two bug-less ones. Needless to say that after a few weeks I simply got used to the bug and I never complained.

I first reported this in January, when my ipad2 was about six months old.
