Confirmed here: Finder and Firefox both respond to the first tap, but
in Rev the first tap is lost in the scrollbars for both fields and
groups, requiring either a second tap or a physical click instead.
I've noticed mixed behavior with tap vs click in other apps too, though
offhand I can't recall what they are. Do any of you have examples of
taps and clicks being handled differently by other apps?
What's especially weird here is that I had previously thought that the
tap triggered the same event record as is generated for a click when
that option is turned on.
But since Rev and at least a few other apps treat some taps different
than clicks, it would seem the event record or some other aspect of the
communication between the OS and the app is indeed different for taps
