No description provided.

The attribute permits the user to select the input text just by clicking it.

There's only one place where this is used by default: the searchbox in about:preferences (see this link)

The other usages seem guarded by browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll which is true by default on Mac and Windows, and false on Linux.

Priority: -- → P5
Type: enhancement → task

Afaik only the urlbar really needs this, the other cases we can just drop.
