User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040614 Firefox/0.8 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040614 Firefox/0.8 Ctrl+Shift cannot be used to align text, usually in forums/forms. Even in this "Details" textbox. In left-to-right based pages you cannot use the right Ctrl+Shift to type from right-to-left, and in right-to-left based pages you cannot use the left Ctrl+Shift to type from left-to-right; this gets very annoying when you try to post a link in a forum, trying to type it from right-to-left with the [URL] and the [/URL]. Whenever I want to post replies or threads (mostly in right-to-left based pages) I have to use the Microsoft Internet Explorer or the Notepad. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Enter any site that includes a textbox, such as a form, or a forum post textbox. 2. Click the textbox, so you could type in it. 3. If the site you are viewing is using left-to-right code (English/French/Spanish... sites) (the text marker shows on the left side of the textbox), try pressing the right Ctrl+Shift. 4. If the site you are viewing is using right-to-left code (Hebrew/Arabic sites) (the text marker shows on the right side of the textbox), try pressing the left Ctrl+Shift. Actual Results: The textbox wasn't aligned to the other side. Expected Results: The textbox marker should have moved to the other side of the textbox, allowing typing from right-to-left on left-to-right pages, or left-to-right on right-to-left pages.
