Bug Description

Current situation
If the user is navigating to the beginning of the text string inside the URL bar (for example if they were navigating to change the beginning of the URL entry), there is no way to navigate to the beginning.

I wonder if this is an issue with the SDK for text selection, rather than for browser.

Desired solution
A way to drag cursor right to beginning on long press - Olivier or Bill to advise.

If I understand it correctly, this issue is general to the UITK’s TextField component.

TextField does not present handlers neither for the input caret nor for the selection carets. Once having those implemented we can have this bug fixed too.
