Steps to reproduce:
- Go to main search page (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?search=, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?search=) and type in the search box. Alternatively, get there by typing gobbledygooksdfdsfdsfds into the ever-present quick-search box.
- Now try to move your cursor to edit somewhere earlier in the string by clicking with your mouse.
- this is possibly related to the appearance of an auto-complete dropdown that now appears when you type slowly from the beginning.
