Ofen, when filling in input boxes in 0.9.9, the cursor will not move forward 
when I type a space. The same effect happens if I delete characters. Say, for 
example, I type "RED DOG", and then delete the letters G-O-D in that order. The 
cursor will immediately jump to the 'D' in RED, rather than the space after it. 
The spaces are recorded correctly (as soon as I type a character, it appears in 
the correct place and the cursor moves after it). This doesn't seem to happen in 
all forms for some reason, but it does happen on some forms (notably the ones on 
the Mozilla website) for both single and multi-line input boxes.

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type text with spaces in it into an input box

Actual Results:  The cursor sits to the left of each space

Expected Results:  The cursor should sit to the right of each space, as with 
other characters.

This was not a problem in any previous version of Mozilla -- I have made no 
configuration changes other than installing the new version.

I can't reproduce this bug with the steps mentioned and the URL supplied:

in my Mozilla Win32 debug build. This sounds almost like bug 87314.

I am using 0.9.9 on w2k. I confirm the problem.
When I first load the page, I get the white rectangle.
When I relaod, the white rectangle disappears. Buf if I click on the page,
switch tab, change application focus, the problem reappears again.

There are also problems with the code supposed to change the image and the link
to open the menu when the mouse is over it. It doesn't work on Mozilla but works
on IE 6.0
I noted that there are plenty of javascript errors in the console.

The 2 problems may then be related and due to javascript, as I think it is used
to do image preloading. Or perhaps there are 2 different problems, one from
javascript, the other from context.
