This is probably a dup of the other focus bugs, but it's important since it makes the editor pretty much unusable, so I'm filing to make sure it gets tested when the focus fixes are in. It's been a problem for about a week. Linux. Pointer focus (not click-to-type). Run mozilla -editor. Type some text. Move the mouse out of the window (i.e. losing focus) then back in. Drag the mouse across some of the text to select. Nothing gets selected! But if you select before moving the mouse out of the window, it works (at least usually). Also, after moving out and back in, try clicking somewhere to set the caret. No caret appears. Type something. The chars go in and the caret comes back -- but notice that the characters you type appear at the old caret position, not the new place you typed.
Nominating for beta since this makes it impossible to change fonts, delete blocks of text, insert inside existing text blocks, etc.
I just tested, and it works for me, but I have a few more changes in my tree. However, I doubt they make the difference...
