If you want to select all the text in the location bar and type a new URL right after a window comes up, the first time you click it ends up just putting the cursor at the beginning of the line, no matter where you clicked. You then have to double click to select all the text. In 4.x, the first click selects all the text.
Kin, I think this may be a dup of 18179
Accepting bug. The fact that the first click sets the cursor at the beginnging is a dup of 18179. I'm not duping this bug because the 4.x SelectAll on Focus/Click feature that warren describes needs to be added to Gfx Text widgets.
*** Bug 21450 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
The bug has 2 parts: 1) the first click doesn't get passed through to the editor. This is covered by other bugs, don't have numbers handy. 2) the browser folks have to put in logic to "select all on initial click", that's behavior unique to the url bar. other text controls shouldn't work that way, it's weird. I think there's already a bug on that one, too.

Depends on: 21612
the layout portion of this is covered in bug 21612, which will be fixed by tomorrow. Reassigning the browser portion to the browser team. It may already be a dup.

Summary: must click 3 times in location bar → Location bar: must select all on initial click
If "select all text on inital click" is going to make it into the final (I really hate this feature but a lot of people like it), please don't do it exactly the same as v4. v4 requires 3 clicks in the url bar to get it to edit where you would like (When 2 clicks could do it) v4.7 does this (If you click fast... if you are slow it works in 2 clicks): 1st click: Selects all (Puts the cursor at the end of the line) 2nd click: >>> Is ignored <<< 3rd click: finally deselects everything and places the cursor where you want it.
Move to M15. Not required for beta 1.
This is a selection bug; QA Assigning to self, of course.

moving back to browser-general, it's not a selection bug. dup of 19217 *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 19217 ***
a) I don't necessarily think that failure to select all on first click (bug 19217) is the same problem as this (clicks being ignored), but I'm willing to see if 19217 fixes it. b) I think this is a real pain in the ass and should certainly be fixed for beta, if not dogfood.
warren: please re-read my comment on 1999-12-13 11:48 and see if you agree with the dup.
Sounds like dups to me. I'm not sure I agree that the location bar should be different from all the other text fields though. That's weird.
I don't agree either, but that is how 4.x behaves... Verifying as duplicate.
