Pressing backspace in a text field makes the caret (cursor) flash in the beginning of the field
When deleting text using backspace the cursor periodically flashes in the beginning of the text field/text area. To Reproduce: 1) place the cursor in the text field at the end of a long string(URL bar works best) 2) Hold down backspace and observe the beginning of the text field EXPECTED: Cursor doesnt get there until the text is deleted ACTUAL: Cursor flashes there periodically. And in the case of the URL/Location bar it is there almost all the time while the backspace is held down. Build: 2002-06-14-08-trunk on windows 98

This was due to my fix which made text widgets use async reflow/paint/scrolling in bug 141900. The flashing is due to the auto variable that hides the caret in nsEditor::EndUpdateViewBatch().

I don't know if it's this bug or bug 151682 or another bug, but since bug 141900 was fixed, typing in the url bar appears much slower, mostly when the autocomplete match list is dropped down. A couple of times when my CPU is busy, I've been able to type an entire url, hit enter, and have the page start loading before anything is updated in the url bar. Mostly, though, it's that characters I type don't immediately show up, just white space.

This bug has been temporarily fixed with the checkin of attachment 101640 [details] [diff] [review] from bug 141900 during the mozilla1.2beta milestone. It basically disables the code which landed as part of attachment 87307 [details] [diff] [review] (async reflow and painting for text widgets) until all issues blocking bug 174823 can be resolved.
