I'm assuming this is a HTML element or form control bug but I may have picked the wrong component. In the 10/28 windows release build, I have problems when I try to delete characters in the Descript field of the bug report. Basically if I type some text and then hit delete a couple times, it ends up deleting ALL of the text I've typed so far. So basically the description field loses all the data. Note: this is just during the editing phase and not during the submission phase. Marking for dogfood.
This may be a DUP of Bug 16760, "Textbox deleting entire contents when backspace is depressed"

Steve -- is this yours??
I'll look into it.
Putting on PDT+ radar.
Cannot reproduce the reported data loss using the [Delete] key as described by the reporter, but the procedure works (loses data) every time if the [Backspace] key is used in the same way. That procedure is described under the second set of "Steps to Reproduce" in Bug 16760. Tested with 1999-10-31-08-M11 nightly binary on both 95 and NT. Tested on a show_bug.cgi page, enter_bug.cgi is currently consistently crashing before the bug-entry page displays.
bumping up priority and linking to tracking bug
this may be related to 16760, but this hasn't been investigated yet, buster will probably need help from jfrancis
I'll take a look at this one.
