Another Google Search bug in iOS Safari
September 11 2023
Last monthI asked, How do I report a Google Search bug? In retrospect, it appears that blogging was an effective method of reporting a Google Search bug, because that bug appears to be fixed now! So I’m going to try again this month with a new bug. Once again, this Google Search bug affects Safari on iOS. Let me illustrate the bug with screenshots. I start on the Google Search 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
Google Searchbug, although this one is not on iOS but rather on macOS, affecting Chrome , Firefox , and Safari . The bug is that Google Search doesn’t recognize the system dark mode until you reload the page.
