Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8

I prefer to write (and read) replies top down, so it would be useful to have an
option to set the cursor to the above the previous replies, instead of at the
end of the message.  For example, currently :

> Hey Joe,
> blah blah blah
> 
> Joe

[cursor starts here]

I would prefer:

[cursor starts here]

> Hey Joe,
> blah blah blah
> 
> Joe

I of course would prefer this to be the default, but I understand some benighted
souls might disagree with my preference, so I'd settle for a preference :).

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reply to a message
2. Cursor is at the bottom of the composer window
3.



Expected Results:  
Depending on the preference, it should be at the top of message in the composer
window.

If I may be so dumb, How? (does it work for you).  I've looked through the
preferences pretty thoroughly, but couldn't find it.
