When I select text and hit backspace the text is not deleted. Also if I
select a block of text and type something else the selected text is not
replaced. In both cases the cursor returns to the begining of the selected
text. This has never been a problem before today and I haven't changed any
preferences. Re-booting my computer didn't fix it.

In Tools > Options > Edit, check "Typing replaces selection".
