Description B.J. Herbison 2013-02-14 11:42:03 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the Find & Replace Dialog (control-H).
2. Enter text in the "Search for" and "Replace for" fields.
3. Alternately click in the "Search for" and "Replace for" fields.

Current behavior:

Clicking in "Search for" selected the current text.
Clicking in "Replace for" does not select the current text.

Expected behavior:

Both fields select the existing text when clicking in the box.

Note: Selecting the fields via keyboard shortcuts ("s" and "p") or via Tab and Shift-Tab select the text for both fields.
Operating System: All
