If I recall correctly, prior 2.8, I could click anywhere to change my position. Now I have to click the bar with timnecodes at the top. Can I change my preferences to do that again? I am not sure about the proper terminology so I made this image to explain myself better (feel free to edit my question with proper terminology).
Try Shift + Right Click will move the playhead to that frame.
