Problem with text selection by cursor and wrong cursor position in input field in yandex search engine.
In other search engines this is not noticed.
Canary 77.0.213.1

Hi @HD321kbps, I have watched your video several times, and I am having difficulty understanding where the text selection is failing.  I have also gone to yandex,ru on both Microsoft Edge Canary and Chrome Canary, and I cannot tell a difference in the text selection.  Can you help me detter understand what is wrong?

Thanks - Elliot

The problem with the selection of text in the Yandex search field is also present in Chrome Canary 77.0.3853.0.
The problem is in the cursor position itself. The cursor is not set by clicking in the right place. Set one character to the right (+1).

Hi @HD321kbps, it sounds like this problem is in the shared codebase.  I would advise you to file the bug in the Chromium bug database: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/list.  I did a quick search and there was only one bug that looked similar to what you are describing: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=767881. Thanks - Elliot
