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.
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.
