Description

1. Launch Mozilla
2. Go to http://www.sun.com
3. Press F7 to turn on caret browsing mode
4. Press TAB once to get into the document, with the caret at roughly the
beginning (at the end of the first chunk of text "sun.com"
5. Press Ctrl-Right-arrow repeatedly.  Notice that the it first gets to the
right of "How To Buy" (correct).  Then to the end of "How" [BUG], then the
beginning of "To" (correct, 'cept for the previous stop at the end of "How"),
then end of "To" [BUG], beginning of "Buy" (correct 'cept of course), end of
"Buy " [BUG] (and note the space).
6. Keep going with Ctrl-right-arrow now, and get to the left of the "|", then to
the right of it (the same "|", then to the space after "|", then to *after* "My"
(all [BUG]s)!
7. Continue along with Ctrl-right-arrow, and find a bunch more issues, including
 a ton of spaces after "Worldwide Sites" and before the edit-box "Search" (all
[BUG]s).
8. Now go back (caret just after "sun.com"), and use right-arrow along to go
through this line.  Things are largely correct, with the occasional extra
spaces, until you get to the space between "Worldwide Sites" and before the
edit-box "Search", where you again find lots of extra spaces that shouldn't be
there [BUG]

www.sun.com probably changed (it no longer has the words "How to Buy" on it), so
the bug description is useless.
