There is a weird issue on specific kindle devices (Gen 6) If a field has input masking applied, when user goes inside the field & starts typing, instead of the masking characters getting consumed as user types in, the characters are just pushed forward in the input field.


( ) - ____ - _____

If the above the the masking. Once user starts typing, it goes like this -

999( ) - ____ - ____

Any idea what could be causing this. I understand this is something kindle's browser is not understanding, but can you tell me which part handles this & if some workaround can be implemented to make it work.

I have submitted a similar issue to the other library as well, just FYI - RobinHerbots/Inputmask#443

Thanks a lot.
