I asked, How do I report a

Google Search
ORG

bug? In retrospect, it appears that blogging was an effective method of reporting a

Google Search
ORG

bug, because that bug appears to be fixed now! So I’m going to try again

this month
DATE

with a new bug. Once again, this

Google Search
ORG

bug affects

Safari
ORG

on iOS. Let me illustrate the bug with screenshots. I start on the

Google Search
ORG

page.

For convenience, I select a trending search.

Now I tap in the search field, to the right of the search phrase.

But the cursor is not inserted to the left of the search phrase; instead it’s inserted to the right! This makes it more difficult to edit.

Notice that the same bug does not occur on macOS. When I click to the right of the search phrase, the cursor is also inserted to the right.

By the way, I’ve noticed a

third
ORDINAL


Google Search
ORG

bug, although this one is not on iOS but rather on macOS, affecting

Chrome
ORG

,

Firefox
ORG

, and

Safari
ORG

. The bug is that

Google Search
ORG

doesn’t recognize the system dark mode until you reload the page.
