Illogical behavior and cursor movement on clicking in search box

已張貼

Although I really prefer the strategy of click once in search box (top right, Google) to select a cursor insertion point and double-click to select a word or the entire box, I will accept the current "backward" strategy of clicking once to select the entire search box.

But if you are trying to correct a misspelled word and you EVENTUALLY (after painfully playing with clicking and delays) do get an insertion point, if you try to move the insertion point to a different word in the search box, it will sometimes move the insertion point BUT it will leave the cursor at the old point. What gives?

In general, I have found, of late, that it is such a pain to make a change in the search box (clicking, double-clicking, waiting, triple-clicking) that I always just try to retype the whole thing.

Am I missing something - the strategy seems so irrational!!

On a related note, often in the search text box, and also while typing in this question box (and elsewhere), random older words or letters of words that have been typed seem to appear (but are not actually used) on the right most margins of the boxes - very annoying

Hello.

If your cursor is already in the search bar, then a single click on any point of the inserted text will move the cursor to that point, rather than selecting the whole word/line. If your cursor is not in the search bar, a single click will select the whole search query. You need an additional click to place the cursor in a specific point.

If your Firefox is not behaving like this, it's possible that you are having a problem with some Firefox add-on that is hindering your Firefox's normal behavior. Have you tried disabling all add-ons (just to check), to see if Firefox goes back to normal?

Whenever you have a problem with Firefox, whatever it is, you should make sure it's not caused by one (or more than one) of your installed add-ons, be it an extension, a theme or a plugin. To do that easily and cleanly, run Firefox in safe mode (don't forget to select Disable all add-ons when you start safe mode). If the problem disappears, you know it's from an add-on. Disable them all in normal mode, and enable them one at a time until you find the source of the problem. See this article for information about troubleshooting extensions and themes and this one for plugins.

If you need support for one of your add-ons, you'll have to contact its author.

If the problem does not disappear when all add-ons are disabled, please tell me, so we can work from there. Please have no fear of following my instructions to the line, as all can be easily undone.
