Text entry cursor is currently positioned to coincide with the trailing edge of the previous character rather than at the location of the leading edge of the character to be entered. This could be a screen resolution or environment dependant problem.

What in the world does "mjudge (selection/caret)" mean? Is it going to be fixed or not? What does "un-confirmed" mean? It takes all of about 12 seconds to see the bug in composer. Simply activate the composer and key two characters.
Al, it means the bug has been reassigned to mjudge (one of Netscape's developers). As for the reason it is "unconfirmed", that's two-fold. The first is you have not (yet) been granted permissions on Bugzilla to create a "NEW" bug. Without those permissions, someone (like me) must come along and review your bug report. If we are able to reproduce the bug, we mark it new to get it on a developer's radar to fix it. Or, if we can find evidence it has been reported elsewhere, we mark it a duplicate. Or, if we find evidence it is not a bug, we mark it invalid. I, for one, am not able to see this bug. 1024x768, Times New Roman, xx-large font size in Composer. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.5+) Gecko/20011108 What are the exact settings you are using to produce this bug?
Sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner; but I've been replacing Win98se with Win 2k. Bug is the same in both OS' As I type this message [in bugzilla's "Additional Comments"], it is most annoying to type when the cursor aligned with the trailing edge of the character just typed rather than at the leading edge of the chacter to be typed. Bug occurs in all Mozilla modules Display is 1156x864. Here is a capture that shows the bug: I was going to insert a screen capture here; but this image paste doesn't work for build 2001111603. Al
Reporter: Save your screenshot as a .gif or .jpg file and create an attachment: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?bugid=103396&action=enter
Created attachment 58749 [details] Screen capture to show cursor positon Here is the capture. Odd that it doesn't show for you. It is doing it as I type now.
This sounds like a duplicate bug to me.
Summary: Text entry cursor positioned incorrectly → Text entry caret positioned incorrectly
dup of Bug 98564 ?
I do see this problem. Often I can navigate my cursor to the end of a line of text, and then press the "end" key to have the caret move a couple pixels over. Confirming bug for now. There may be another bug on caret misbehavior. Procedure: 1. Type "ABC" in the comments field on Bugzilla. 2. Press the "home" key. 3. Press the right key three times to move to the end of the line. 4. Watch closely and press the "end" key.

Ever confirmed: true
yes this is an issue. this is the problem with layout. their frame that surrounds the text ends EXACTLY at the edge of the character displayed. We really need to get layout to extend the edge of the frame for the editor. This is a duplicate bug and we are in talks with the layout guys to work over these kinds of issues. Thanks a lot for this report it helps to remind us how annoying it is. I am marking this duplicate as soon as i can find that layout catch all bug. Marking it future for now.
