From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc2) Gecko/20020510 BuildID: 1.0rc2 the displayed cursor (vertical bar) in the url bar doesn't move in response to mouse positioning or cursor key positioning. the actual cursor position does change, i can hit the right arrow key 3 times and then the delete key, and the correct character in the url text is deleted. but the displayed cursor is still at the beginning of the text. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.get some text in the url bar 2.try to position the cursor (hit right arrow a few times) 3.note cursor position, still at beginning of text i've only tested 2 platforms (3 computers). the problem occurs on 2 linux machines, both running Mandrake Linux 8.2, one running KDE 3.0 and one running XFCE desktops. on a windows 2000 machine, the problem does not occur.
problem doesn't occur running redhat7.3/kde3.0
I can confirm this. I believe this is a subset of the behaviour of bug 145213, and therefore a duplicate of that bug.
fixed with new compile of mozilla 1.0rc2, using gcc 3.1-1 package on Mandrake Linux , which has a fix for a memset problem in gcc.
