How do you make the Search and Address Boxes behave like regular input fields? I always have to click twice slowly before I can edit.
Look, I know I'm the only one who is annoyed by this. The address box and search box *look* like regular text input fields, but when I click inside one of them, all the text is selected. In a regular input field, the cursor is placed where I clicked. To select a word, you double click. To select all the text, you triple click.
All the other browsers do this, so I understand why it has to be like this. But could I have a customization option where I can turn this off? I *think* there was a time when Firefox didn't do this. Those were the good old days!
I am sorry, but I don't think I quite understand what you're saying. Could you please give me more details so I can help you?
You need to do a 'slow' double-click in the location bar to make it two single clicks to position the cursor like you wrote in the title.
This has been changed to cleanup the code and remove support for the prefs that define the click and double-click behavior.
