Description

12 years ago
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.9a6pre) Gecko/20070622 Minefield/3.0a6pre

Steps to reproduce:
1. Type "###!!! ASSERTION: foo" into a textbox.
2. Place the cursor at the beginning of a line.
3. Press Alt+Right a few times.

Result: It only moves forward one character while it's in the punctuation.

Expected: The punctuation should be treated as a group, at least.  (Preferably, do what older versions of Firefox did: consider punctuation to be "part of" the word before it for the purpose of Alt+Right, so pressing Alt+Right twice would put the caret just before "foo".)

The patch in bug 389421 should fix this.
