From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020311 BuildID: 2002031104 Ctrl+Left Arrow/Right Arrow skip punctuation. I just copied the first sentence of this paragraph into Word, and it stops at the following points ("|" marks a stop point; the cursor starts at the first "|"): |Ctrl|+|Left |Arrow|/|Right |Arrow |skip |punctuation|.| In this text entry field, it stops as follows: |Ctrl+Left |Arrow/Right |Arrow |skip |punctuation.| A couple other text editing issues: 1. I just noticed that when I hit Ctrl+Right Arrow at the end of this text entry field, it acts as if I had hit Ctrl+Home! 2. PgUp/PgDn do not move the cursor, only the view -- so when I then hit one of the arrow keys, it returns me to where I was! 3. Down Arrow on the last line acts like End when it should do nothing (as Word); if I then hit Right Arrow, it acts as if I had hit "Home, Right Arrow". 4. I was navigating in this paragraph (before I broke it into numbered sections), and it DID stop after the "!" at the end of the first sentence in this paragraph, but not the "." at the end of the previous sentence. 5. I wonder if it stops on a question mark? Well, it doesn't. But it DID stop after the "." after "doesn't"! And it DID NOT stop after the "!" in the previous sentence! (Or the previous.) Very odd. 6. Finally, Ctrl+Up Arrow and Ctrl+Down Arrow should do something. Either move to the previous/next paragraph, or scroll the window, leaving the cursor where it is (unless the cursor "scrolls off the window" in which case keep it at the bottom/top line). I realize that I lumped many bugs together in this report, but they're all dealing with the text editor. Another I just noticed now -- 7. My typing is faster than the screen updating, so I looked at the Windows Task Manager and it shows that Mozilla takes up the entire processor while I type. As soon as I stop typing, usage goes back down to 0%. Another annoyance: I had entered the above into this form. Then I went back to the other Mozilla window to search Bugzilla for "ctrl punctuation" (I had originally searched for "ctrl left" which opened this window). I expected the second search to open a new window as well, but instead it reused this window! When I hit "Back" it returned me to this entry form, with the Summary still filled in but all of this text deleted! VERY annoying, especially because it was selective in retaining my data. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Enter text into a text entry field, including a word containing punctuation (such as Ctrl+Enter). 2. Use Ctrl+Left Arrow or Ctrl+Right Arrow to move around, and you'll notice that it skips over the entire word "Ctrl+Enter" instead of stopping just before the "+" and again just before the "E". Actual Results: It skipped the punctuation. Expected Results: It should stop at the punctuation, as most other program which process text do under Windows.
Please file separate reports instead of lumping a bunch of problems into one bug. It's hard to keep track of what has been fixed when issues are lumped together. But before you do, please download a newer version of Mozilla and retest them, since I think some of those problems have already been fixed. I filed bug 143787 for the Bugzilla Helper problem you mentioned. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 98546 ***
