just discovered a bug when trying to use the quick selection tool to select a uniformly colored background.

If I start with the selection at the top left, the tool does not recognize the edge of the object and selects it even though I do not even touch the object. Interestingly, in the attached video it looks like I'm touching the object, but on the screen itself, I'm almost a full brush tip width away from the object.

If I start the selection elsewhere, the quick selection tool will do the job right.

Hi @PaRunk,

I can't replicate this here. 

Any chance you can that (yet simple) afphoto file?

The only thing I can think of is that there might be something around that area . You're not really selecting anything (the pixel layer only has RGB data where you draw, and the rest is empty. So that "white" you see it's not actually white.
