But... hmm... How can I describe it exactly? When I press the space bar, instead of going one step away from the previous word, it for some reason goes to the beginning of the line. The typing continues OK, but it seems like it pushes the whole line a bit further. The most noticable problem this produces is that the full stops, exclamation marks etc.. put in the end of the line will appear in it's beginning. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start composing a new e-mail message 2. Align the text to the right 3. Start typing a message in hebrew (if you can) and see what happens Actual Results: What is said aboved. Expected Results: Act just like a word processor should act - move the cursor left each time I type something instead of "attempting to go" to the right each time.
Setting right-alignment is the wrong way to set the text direction to right-to-left. Unfortunately there currently is no right way. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 96057 ***

shouldn't this be a dup of bug 119857? a temporary workaround can be found here: http://www.mozilla.org.il/support/faq.shtml (hebrew)
It's a dupe of 119857 if you are thinking of plain-text email, but of 96057 for HTML mail.
