Hitting return to insert newlines between quoted text and text about to be typed
causes the newlines to be inserted after the cursor, which means I need to
scroll down with the cursor keys to get to the where I want to type.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Reply to message
2.Click within quoted text
3.Hit return a few times

Actual Results:  
Newlines inserted after the cursor

Expected Results:  
Cursor moves down as I hit return/newlines inserted at (before) cursor.

I see this with 1.3b under linux as well.
| this is a test line.

If I move the cursor to before "test" and hit return to insert
a new line, I would expect the text to become

| this is a 
test line

But mozilla tries to be smart and add "|" before the second line.
But I get an extra newline as reported here and so the result is

| this is a

| test line

and the cursor is on the line between the two quoted ("|") lines.

This is rather annoying and in the serious problem category.
