To reproduce: 1) Open a new mail message compose window and move immediately to the message body. 2) Type the following text into the message body,without pressing enter: "Assuming you are using the PLSQL execution engine, the way to obtain the desired effect is to call the " 3) Select bold text, either from menu or ctrl-b 4) Continue typing the following "ff_exec.run_formula" 5) De-select bold text. 6) Continue typing the following " procedure with the " 7) Select bold text. 8) Continue typing "p_use_dbi_cache". Notice that as soon as the "p" key is pressed, the text cursor moves backwards and as you continue to type, the "p_use_dbi_cache" appears immediately after the "ff_exec.run_formula" text (in bold). Expected result : the "p_use_dbi_cache" text should appear following the "procedure with the " text. Further notes: 1) When I beging to type, the settings shown in my mailnews window are "Body Text" and "Variable Width", the normal settings. 2) I tried a few different things to see if I could track down exactly what the problem is, by typing in various combinations of bold and normal text, but was unable to pinpoint. Therefore, I've used the exact phrase that I was typing in a mail that alerted me to the problem. 3) Have seen this on Mozilla 1.0 and Netscape 7.0 PR1 (which I believe means it's been around since at least Moz rc2. 4) The "about:" screen displayed as: "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020607" 5) Have not tried this on platforms other than Linux.
David Saxby, do you still see this bug with current versions of Mozilla? I am unable to duplicate it, but I am using Windows. If things are working OK for you now, please mark this bug Resolved|WorksForMe
Agreed, this seems to have gone away and thus I am marking as resolved, as requested.
