Subsequent times after the first, the mouse pointer most likely will land up in the header requiring manual movement and a mouse click to put the pointer where the address can be input. The mouse pointer should ALWAYS default to the ADDRESS line when doing a FORWARD message function. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Try and input multiple forwards in a series sequence. 2. 3. Actual Results: see above. Expected Results: see above. This undesirable operation started in version 1.5 somewhere and has not yet been corrected in 1.7rc1.
The "mouse pointer"? Don't you mean the "caret" (aka cursor) -- the blinking indicator showing where your next typed character will go? I do not see this symptom occuring in 1.6 or 1.7b or 1.8a. The caret always lands in the first To: box when I forward, whether as attachment or inline, whether composing in HTML or plain text. What theme are you using?
Oops.. Sorry, I was not explicit enough. Please look at the screen photo at: http://www.gpsinformation.org/joe/misc/mozilla17rc1mailaccterror2.jpg Notice that there is NOT a blinking (steady or otherwise) cursor (or blinking indicator as suggested) just to the right of the little square BOX which is just to the right of the To: This is the SECOND OR THIRD OR FOURTH time in an email session that you try and FORWARD an email (say to the anti=spam system). The very FIRST time you try to forward the email, then the cursor (or blinking indicator) is indeed in exactly the right spot just to the right of the little square box. The problem is: When I collect my mail for the day I often have 30 to 40 emails waiting for me at a time. Some of these must be forwarded to others, some I want to forward to my anti-spam filter so I will not get that sort of mail again. It would be very nice if EVERY TIME I click FORWARD, the little vertical bar cursor would magically appear in the right place for beginning to type in a new email address just as it does the very FIRST time you do a forward in a mail session. I think you can see the theme I am using from the photo. I do not know the proper name of it. The Mozilla system is 1.7rc1.
(In reply to comment #2) > I think you can see the theme I am using from the photo. That's the Modern theme. Even tho I'm duping this, I'm going to update the summary anyway. :) *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 222533 ***
