Breaking changes of F8 key behaviour in 2.x builds - bug or feature?



  • There is a huge difference in F8 key behaviour in 2.x line.

    Scenario:

    • set focus at address field
    • change / replace current URL with some trash
    • click on website body
    • press F8

    In 1.x line these steps caused moving focus to address field and selecting whole content.
    In 2.x line these steps cause moving focus to address field... with placing a cursor at the end.

    Question to Sopranos / V-devs:
    Is this intended? If yes - why?
    Or is it just a bug/regression?
    If not - would it be possible to add option to restore old behaviour?

    A regression bug.
    VB-46441 "Focus address field (Ctrl+L , F8) doesn't select all text when focus was already in address field"



  • @Gwen-Dragon Oh...
