I start typing "watermelon"

If I scroll through the results without finishing the word I can change the word.

If I click on a result, or press enter after typing the word I must start over.

This is fine if I spell it correctly, or if there's a result for the search. If I misspell or there's no result I have to copy/paste to start over, or just retype it.

Google search is different. Type watermelon and press enter. Scroll as much or little as wanted, you can always click in the word watermelon and make any changes/additions to it.

My husband offered a solution and it seems to work. When the name is highlighted by clicking the end key it will un-highlight the name and allow updates. I tried it and seems to work. I will monitor this issue and report back if it acts up again.

I have the same issue, I use Firefox on 2 different computer. Once I click out of the box I can't click back in. When I do it highlights and I can only delete it.

For instance, "Aldi Penguins" and enter brings up nothing. Click back in it's all highlighted, type the start of "savoritz 4 kids penguin aldi" and it deletes and has me type in the whole thing.

Funny about it, still nothing comes up but if I scan the barcode with the iphone app it finds and enters "Savoritz 4 Kids Penguin Aldi" but that's a separate issue for another day:)

The last time I tried to correct a food item I attempted to put my curser in the search box but it highlighted the name and would not allow me to edit the name. The way I have gotten around this is copy the entry and paste it back in the search box and then edit it again. I am NOT selecting any of the items in the list before it locks up the search box. This gets frustrating as I might have spelled the name wrong and need to correct the spelling and it makes me copy and paste to allow me to edit the entry.

I just tried, and my cursor was still flashing in the box while I scrolled through the entries. Once you click on something, then that's the entry that shows up in the box and you would have to remove it to go back and search again. Is it working differently for you? If so, what browser are you using?

I have been noticing for a while that when I enter a food item in the search box and cannot find what I am looking for so I try and place my curser on the bar to edit the entry. It will not allow me to edit it. The food item will be highlighted and when I try and use the home key or any other key it blanks the line and I have to start over. I have a screen pic.
