Android / Amazon Fire Virtual Keyboard (on screen keyboard iOS & Android) disappears after app focus lost

It seams like keyboard_virtual_status() does not recognize the correct status after app has lost it's focus.
The onscreen keyboard disappears and no way to turn it back on.
Step event:
Code:
   if (!keyboard_virtual_status())
   {
       keyboard_virtual_show(kbv_type_email, kbv_returnkey_go, kbv_autocapitalize_none, true);
   }
I use GMS IDE 2.2.4.459 and runtime 2.2.4.366.
Tested on iOS 13.1.2 and Android 9.0

Would appreciate any help.

I saw the same thing. I managed to work around it by checking is_os_paused() and closing my input box and the virtual keyboard if so, then not actually checking the keyboard_virtual_status when opening the input box.
