Regular cursoring now results in the cursor hopping to the beginning of a line, making it infuriating to do common editing. Now a lot of extra cursoring, ctrl-cursoring or mouse clicking (ugh) is required to edit the middle of a "column" of several lines of text. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Type two equal-length lines of text into an edit field. 2. Cursor to the middle of the topmost sentence. 3. Cursor down. Actual Results: The cursor hops to the beginning of the line. Expected Results: The cursor should stay where it is horizontally, but move down one line.

It seems to have broken again with: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20060201 Firefox/22.214.171.124 I won't re-open this unless I get confirmation that someone else is seeing this problem.
I can confirm that this bug is present in Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20060310 Ubuntu/dapper Firefox/188.8.131.52
This bug seems to be resolved "for real" with a newer version of Firefox: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20060728 Firefox/220.127.116.11 I have made no changes in my extensions except to update them. It's possible it was an extension update that resolved a bug in an extension, or it was the Firefox update which resolved a bug in either Firefox or in an extension. =) Andy, would you try updating to see if this problem is also fixed for you?

As I commented in [url=https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=343927]this bug[/url], I have this problem in 18.104.22.168. And, not only in Firefox, but also in Thunderbird.
FYI, there is a patch for this at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=198759
