Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

While providing the tags to this very question, I get 5 tag suggestions after typing "bug". When I click on "learn more", the info page of the respective tag opens in a new tab. This is good. Now, after typing "tag-sel" I only get 1 suggestion, namely "tag-selector". When I click "learn more", the tag "tag-selector" is selected and no info page is opened.

I've tested this for a few tags, and this buggy behaviour seems to appear whenever there's only 1 tag suggestion. (Test it yourself at the edit link for this very question!)

GOOD WORK! I encountered this a few times and couldn't reproduce it reliably, I just assumed it was a temporary issue. – Matthew Read Aug 22 '11 at 15:47

That's what I get for wanting to use as much of the browser's native behavior as possible instead of also reinventing the fourth wheel: Stuff breaks :)

Fixed in the next build.

Great, thanks for the quick fix. – Hendrik Vogt Aug 22 '11 at 17:29
Just out of curiosity, what native behavior were you trying to use? And what wheel did you have to re-invent to fix this? – Cody Gray Aug 23 '11 at 10:42
@CodyGray: Well, we did reinvent the textbox :) This was an issue with click events vs. focus events (where the native behavior I reffered to was using tabbing around to change focus) – balpha Aug 23 '11 at 10:51
