User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/2009060215 Firefox/3.0.11 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Thunderbird ver (20090302)

When composing and proof-reading new mail, I'll often go back and make edits to the middle of the text I have typed.  When I do, some sort of line feed or carriage return is added at the end of my text.  It isn't visible (i.e. I can put my cursor at the end of the last line and the cursor can travel no further down on the page), but if I continue typing at the end of the last line, the new text drops to the next line down.

I am currently using version, but I have seen this bug in the last two or three Thunderbird releases.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a new composition and type a couple of paragraphs worth of text
2. Move the cursor up to the middle of the text and type more words.
3. Move the cursor to the end of the text and type more words.
** NOTE ** I do not use a signature line, so the last line of the last paragraph is the last line of text for the entire composition.
Actual Results:  
The new text for step 3 will drop one or more lines (depending on the number of actual edits - the number of times you manually move the cursor and type any place except the end of the text.  This can be fixed by moving the cursor to the start of the new test and backspacing, but we shouldn't have to do this.

Expected Results:  
The text from step 3 should remain continuous with the last line instead of dropping to a new line.

** Pure Unfounded Speculation ** Might this be related to Bug 482952?
rlloden could you reproduce your issue also with latest TB 3.0.x?
