It's hard / impossible to bring the cursor to the left edge of the screen by mouse click

Use case or problem

I often would like to bring the cursor to the left-most part of a line by clicking.
This only works when I click precisely onto the first character.
if I click even a bit left, the click won’t be recognized as such.
If the first word happens to be a link, it is impossible to place the cursor there without triggering the link action.

Proposed solution

Make the space left of the beginning of the line clickable, similar to MS Word or other text editors. A few millimetres would suffice.
