Menu 'File → Open → sample document' » caret flashes at the right end of contents 2. Mouxe click into "xxx" » caret flashes somewhere in "xxx" 3. [arrowright] on key board several times to move caret to the right » every key press moves caret 1 character to the right, also in formula Bug: last visible caret position is right from "1", next [arrowright] will make caret invisible.

There are some additional strange movecarreteffects, I will do additional research later. Also REPRODUCIBLE with English SeaMonkey 2.44a1 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:47.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/47.0 Build 20160208023510 (Default Theme) on VirtualBox Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

My test results with older SeaMonkey Versions (WINDOWS) and sample document a) 2.33.1: Insert Math AVAILABLE. LaTeX formula in sample document shown correctly Caret problem DOES EXIST b) 2.26.1: No Insert Math available. LaTeX formula in sample document shown correctly. Caret problem DOES EXIST c) 2.16: No Insert Math available. LaTeX formula in sample document shown correctly No caret problem d) 2.5: No Insert Math available. LaTeX formula in sample document shown correctly. No caret problem e)2.0: No Insert Math available. Latex formula in sample document NOT shown correctly, LaTeX source code shown. No caret problem (of course) f) Conclusion (b,c): Problem appeared somewhen between 2.16 and 2.26.1 g) Conclusion (a,b): Problem is not related to Insert Math Dialog
