Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Write 5 lines of text (one word in each line is enough) 2. Select lines 2 to 4 and turn them into a bulleted list 3. Place the caret at the end of line 4 (last bullet point) 4. Hit enter twice (so that an empty line is created between lines 4 and 5 5. Place the caret at the end of line 5 6. Start typing. You'll see the caret jumping one line up (to the empty line between lines 4 and 5). Actual Results: The caret jumps one line up. Expected Results: The caret should not move. It might be important that in Tools/Options/Composition/General/HTML I have defined a style different from the default (verdana/small).
4. Hit enter twice (so that an empty line is created between lines 4 and 5 Instead of hitting enter twice, hit enter once, then un-bullet (hit the bullet icon) That should place the caret where you want. The HTML editor is full of such quirks, it's old code, and no imminent re-write is in sight. I don't know of a dup of this, but there probably is one.

I think that this issue is the same of bug #483583. Feel free to reopen it if I'm wrong.
