From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020808 BuildID: 2002080811 There is a discrepancy between the position of the caret displayed in a text field and where typed letters actually go. As a result, it becomes impossible to aim for a particular letter in a text field. I can consistently reproduce this behaviour using text zooming, but it seems to occur sporadically without any zoom. Once it starts, the problem is persistent. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to a web page with a one-line text field such as Google. 2. Press Cmd-+ to magnify the text zoom level. 3. Type in a long string of letters into the text field. 4. Experiment with different text zoom levels. Actual Results: After one text enlargement, the caret appears significantly farther to the right than the text itself. With two text enlargements, the caret is lined up properly again. At four enlargements, there is a small but noticeable discrepancy. I browse at 12 pt, so you may need to use different zoom levels to reproduce. The font used in the text field is Geneva. Expected Results: Caret should remain consistent with the positions of the letters.
probably related to bug 161818, but can occur in Western encodings. Confirming.

bug 161878 may be related to this.
Does this only happen on Mac?
WFM 20020818 trunk 1.1RC for MacOS9.x. I can not reproduce this in the latest build, either with fixed-width font (in this field) or proportional font (Summary Field).

I can't reproduce it either, and haven't seen it sporadically in limited use of build 2002081717. It sounds like the fix for bug 161818 might have killed this bird, too?

This bug is targeted at a Mac classic platform/OS, which is no longer supported by mozilla.org. Please re-target it to another platform/OS if this bug applies there as well or resolve this bug.

Using bulid 200331120105 I can still confirm this bug using Macosx, try typing this(all what I wrote) text for example in addditional comments text field, you will notice that the caret will get crazy. Moreover, try to change the carot position using mouse, it's imposibble.
WFM Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20051001 Firefox/1.6a1 ID:2005100107 I'm marking this WORKSFORME based on comments #4 and #5, my own experience, and the lack of duplicates/votes.
