Weird cursor position in the Search field
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

As mentioned in cswiki Village Pump discussion, the cursor in the Search field on the page Special:Search seems to appear in weird position. I've tried it on different language versions (mainly LTR, but RTL have same issues) and the result is the same.

When I click in any position in the Search field (e. g. to correct the query), the blinking cursor appears some 6 characters to the right of the actual position of the ][ cursor.

The behaviour is confirmed in Google Chrome (both Win7 and Win10), but in Firefox everything seems to be OK. This behaviour doesn't affect the search box in the upper right corner.

Hi @Draceane, thanks for taking the time to report this!

I cannot reproduce with Chromium 77 on Fedora on https://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speciální:Hledání :

Does the same problem happen in a private browser window (when you are not logged in)?

Could you maybe provide a screenshot?

Using private browser window makes no difference. I cannot provide any suitable screenshot, as the cursor doesn't appear in it.

I can post or send a video, maybe.

Please also provide the exact Chrome version used.

Chrome 77.0.3865.90, 64bit
I've uploaded the video here.

I can reproduce with Chrome 77.0.3865.120.
