Very difficult to explain here. I find that when Composing a reply to a
messsage, if I first mark an area of text and delete it, and then use the Delete
key to remove a little more (unmarked this time), any attempt to type will force
the cursor and typed typed text somewhere above where I'm typing. Odd. It took a
while to find the reproducible pattern.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose Reply to a Message.
2. Mark some of the quoted text and delete it.
3. Delete a little more, this time unmarked.
4. Now start typing somewhere below were you deleted.

Actual Results:  Cursor is moved somewhere above where I'm typing.

Expected Results:  Obvious.

The days of having a half dozen milestones out in front of us to divide bugs 
between seem to be gone, though I dont know why.  Lumping everything together as 
far out as I can.  I'll pull back things that I am working on as I go.
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla1.2beta

Ralph Alvy, I am unable to duplicate the symptom using Mozilla 1.3 Final.  Is 
this bug still a problem for you?  Have you updated to a more current build of 
Mozilla (1.3 or 1.4)?

jfrancis, I've taken the liberty of resetting the milestone, as 1.2beta is long 
gone.  I don't know what you intended here, but it was certainly confusing.
Severity: major → normal
Target Milestone: mozilla1.2beta → ---
