From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020311 BuildID: 2002031106 Hello! Shift - Delete should really emulate forward delete in text editing mode, Because many Macs dont have a forward delete and this keyCombo is (AFAIK) standard to get this functionality. For example on my iBook there is no such key, and I also dont have a system wide emulation for this key activated (I know one can get it somewhere) so it would be nice if Mozilla supports it under OS 9. (Also this behaviour is standard on many other applications [e.g.: BBedit]) This is also the reason that this keycombo should not be used to have any other functionality. thx alot! Martin Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to any place in mozilla in which you can edit text 2. Place the cursor in the middle of it. 3. Compare <Delete> with <Shift-Delete> Actual Results: Shift Delete acts the samme as Delete pressed on its own. Expected Results: Shift delete should work as <forward-delete>.

I seem to remember brade or akkana fixing this a looooong time ago? Did something get undone?

Delete and shift-delete both delete forward on unix moz. That's the correct behavior for unshifted delete; I know of know consensus for what shift-delete should do; same as delete seems reasonable, though on some apps it does nothing. I'll defer to Kathy for the mac bindings.
