User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686 on x86_64; rv:32.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/32.0
Build ID: 20140825202822

Steps to reproduce:

1. Clicked Forward (with inline forwarding option enabled)
2. Positioned cursor at top left of the composition window
3.a Pressed delete 3 times
OR
3.b Pressed delete twice, backspace once


Actual results:

3.a. 1st Delete keypress moved the cursor *forward* onto the 2nd blank line, so that 3rd delete removed first character of the forwarded message (part of the "--------- Forwarded Message ------" line), instead of removing the leading 3 blank lines.


3.b. Deletes the three blank lines correctly, but the backspace jumps the cursor to the end of the  "--------- Forwarded Message ------" line.


Expected results:

Should have deleted the leading 3 blank lines, and left the cursor positioned at the top left of the window.

BTW, this bug has been present in TB for as long as I can remember (version 2 onwards, IIRC).  Sorry for not reporting it earlier.
