From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; SunOS 5.7 sun4u) BuildID: 2000100610 If I use the mouse to select text to the end of a TEXTAREA line, I can't always delete or edit it. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to a textarea and type a few lines with several words each. 2. Select the text to the end of a line. 3. Type something or press Delete. 4. Mouse the cursor to before the last character on the line. 5. Push the cursor-forward key. Actual Results: (3) and (5) may do nothing. Expected Results: There are other problems, but these seem easiest to reproduce (or maybe they are just easiest to notice:-) - After a bit of mousing and typing, the cursor keys may not work at all. - Bug 35952 ("spacebar scrolls page) is active. - Mozilla crashed when I was about to submit this bug. Maybe that was because I had experimented with the problem. Sorry, no coredump, but the output ended with: didnt get here ****** returning null 2 dragstart didnt get here ****** returning null 2 X Error of failed request: BadAtom (invalid Atom parameter) Major opcode of failed request: 17 (X_GetAtomName) Atom id in failed request: 0x72006e Serial number of failed request: 253921 Current serial number in output stream: 253921
Oops - I think it was just the bug-report window which crashed, not all of Mozilla. At least there was a Mozilla window left (without the bug report), and I don't think I had two Mozillas running.

confirmed, linux, trunk. Select last half of URL bar and try to replace the text, you can't. Regression.

Ever confirmed: true
I cannot use the Location bar with this bug, marking dogfood.
assigning to kin for debug
Kin, do you have the time to fix this before RTM? It really sucks for a lot of people.
I can't get this to happen in my current trunk build (which does, however, have some changes in it, so I'll try to figure out what those are and if anything might be blocking my seeing this bug). Joe, however, says he may have seen something like this earlier today -- he got an editor transaction error.
To answer don's question ... if I can reproduce it, I can look at it. Is this bug on the Netscape_20000922_BRANCH or the trunk? There was a big landing of the NO_XIF_20000911_BRANCH on the trunk this weekend, so if it's only on the trunk, it may or may not, be related to that. Mcafee says he can't type in any text widgets in his Linux trunk build, but akkana can? I can't reproduce this problem in my trunk or branch Win32 build.

I get this assertion when I try to delete the selection: ###!!! Break: at file nsEditor.cpp, line 1163 ###!!! ASSERTION: selection not collapsed after delete selection.: 'PR_TRUE==isCollapsed', file nsTextEditRules.cpp, line 913 jfrancis sees this in one case on the Mac, but not this particular selection case.
Works for me on mozilla win32 trunk. Trying "Editor" component instead of "Form Submission", if you've got a better component please change it.
Component: Form Submission → Editor
This is a real bug, but I don't see any signs it is related to noxif. I have a fix for it. Attaching patch momentarily.
-> joe. rtm+ this bug on the basis of serious usability issues, esp. on linux, and the brevity and safety of the patch (which is coming).

The bug is back! Can't edit textarea, location bar, or 'open web location' window. Build ID 2001060622 (Solaris), though I seem to remember I noticed it some time ago but forgot to report it then.
Status: VERIFIED → REOPENED
Resolution: FIXED → ---
Which bug is back? You say you can't edit. That's not exactly what this bug originally said. Please be specific. I am able to edit text widgets in a 6/6/01 build fine.
Um. You are right, it's worse now - maybe it should be a different bug. Let's see -- $ uname -a SunOS bombur.uio.no 5.8 Generic_108528-03 sun4u sparc $ mozilla "http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=55748" & I cannot place a visible cursor in the Summary field, location bar, or the "open web location" window at all, and cannot type anything there. I can select text in these fields (drag left mouse button), but can't edit or delete the selected text. I *can* paste in text with the middle mouse button. ...hey, after I started netscape, typed this report, and went back to the mozilla window, I *can* edit and type in the "Additional Comments" part in Mozilla! The problem still holds for the other fields though: if I try to type in the Summary field or location bar, the text now appears in Additional Comments. Seems to be a focus problem. If I open a New Web Location box, I still can't type anything there. When I close it, nothing I try to type in the Summary field appears. When I click on Additional Comments, I can type there, and what I type in Summary again appears in Additional Comments. I've tried to start a 2nd mozilla and then a 2nd netscape to reproduce that, but I cant. In the 2nd mozilla I can place the cursor it the Additional Comments field, but can't type anything. I don't remember if I tested that in the 1st mozilla.
oops, I forgot to say that the _rest_ of my description still applies to that 2nd mozilla: No typing/editing in the other fields.
I see the can't-select-last-line-of-text in plain text compose, this problem has been there for a few weeks at least.
Hallvard, the problems you describe sound like focus problems, so lets file a different bug and leave this one closed as fixed since it was caused by something totally different. Mcafee, mjudge knows about that problem, it is a bug in selection, I don't know if he filed a bug about though.
marking as fixed, Hallvard, please opena new bug for the reported issue
