Default Possible Mouse / Pointer Problem

Please Login to Remove!

Most everything is ok since putting on new OS 4.5 (I really like it), EXCEPT, and a BIG EXCEPT--an uncomfortable one.

If I am on my Google homepage, or any page where there is a space or search engine or something to type in, I used to be able to hover over it and type immediately, I believe. Now I need to hit enter once I am over top of the search box to start typing.

Now the following, I am sure, IS different: If I have a word typed in the box for some reason, and I am out of the search engine box, and I would want to go into the middle of lets say "mississippi" because I had "misissippi" to correct it.

It would not let me in the middle. I would have to hit enter, as described in paragraph 1 to get into the search box, then scroll up to get to the beginning or down to get to the end, and then work my way to the middle to correct the word. WEIRD

And then in the end, when I am done, I cannot scrolll right out of the box to SEARCH, I have to hit enter in the box to get out then goto SEARCH

Tmo did a conference with RIM. They said their usual. 4.5 is not meant with this phone.

I believe this has been fixed in newer versions.

I actually think this is the fix for the previous bug where you could not select enter or re-edit the box after leaving it.
