Issue with changing input method by ibus in the url bar or the search bar

Unread postby chentz » Thu, 19 Jul 2018, 17:44

Sometimes I need to change the input method when typing in the URL bar or the search bar. Once I hit the shortcut to change the input method in Ibus, everything that I just typed are selected. It is quite annoying that if I do not unselect them before typing new words then all the previous words will be covered.

This issue only happens in the URL and the search bar. I can normally change the input method in the web forms.

Switching input method probably counts as a click to re-focus the input on the address bar.

Go to about:config and set browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll to false
