Description

7 years ago
When clicking to select the location bar, a caret is first shown.
This visual feedback indicates that text will be inserted and backspace will delete just one character.

However just after the user sees this and begins typing, the caret is removed and the whole text is shown selected.  Typing deletes the entire text.

Expected results:
The caret should not be shown (until the selection is removed in some way).
