    I'm upgrading to a Galaxy S5 Neo from an S3 mini.

    On the S3, when I wanted to type in the address bar on Chrome (Or Firefox), I could click in it, the whole url would be selected and when I began typing, the text would clear.

    Now I'm on an S5 Neo, this behaviour seems to have changed. Now when I click in the address bar, the text is selected, but when I begin typing, the text just gets added to the end of what has been selected and doesn't clear what's there.

    I tried this in both Chrome and Firefox and the behaviour is the same. Is there a way to change this to the more useful "select and clear" behaviour?

    Is there any chance you're double-tapping the URL bar, either on purpose or by accident?

    Does it happen in Safe Mode as well? https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-10696 If some 3rd party app is interfering, then Safe Mode should make it temporarily go away.

    I decided to reset the whole phone and that seemed to fix the issue, which means that something is interfering. The only thing that I can thing of that might cause any issue is Nova Launcher, but as that's nothing to do with behaviours inside a browser app, I don't understand why that might affect it. All other custom apps are standalone apps and don't affect the way the phone works.

    Have all apps been reinstalled? If not, you could try reinstalling them one by one, testing the browser after each install. Tedious, but it may help you pinpoint the problem app.

    It annoyed me enough to simply get a refund on the phone. Since it's a software issue, I know it might happen on a different phone, but I'd rather not deal with it!
