If the width of the text within an <input type="text"> is longer than the width of the element itself, it's not possible for the user to scroll the cursor to the start of the text.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open in iOS Safari.
2. Tap into the text input.
3. Type in a long string of text, such that the start of the text has been pushed to far to the left that it's no longer visible.
4. Attempt to move the cursor towards the start of the text by long pressing within the input and then, without taking your finger off the touchscreen, moving your finger beyond the left edge of the text input field.

Expected Results:
The text in the input should start moving to the right, so that eventually the beginning of the text is reached.

Actual Results:
The text in the input does not start moving to the right.
