Bug Description

The on-screen keyboard (OSK) does not appear in Firefox nor Qt apps under Wayland. I assume that it does not work in XWayland apps.

Steps to reproduce the bug:

0. Turn on the assistive OSK from Settings
1. Select a text field in a webpage in Firefox → No OSK
2. Select a text field in a Qt app (e.g. Goldendict) → No OSK

This bug does not exist in X11.
