Pressing Delete Key doesn't delete the Table cell
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Windows NT; DigExt) BuildID: 2000101014 I set the composer preferences such that Delete key will "Remove the entire cell". I designed a new page in composer with table and tried to delete a cell by pressing the delete key. It didn't work for me as designed. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Set the Composer preferences First. 1. Launch the Mozilla browser. 2. Select Edit->Preferences->Composer. 3. Select the "Remove the entire cell" radio button under table editing frame on right hand side of the preferences dialog. 4. Click on OK button. Now 1. Open a new composer window. 2. Insert a table. 3. Place the cursor in some cell. 4. Press the Delete Key. Actual Results: The cursor is moving to the next cell. Expected Results: The designated cell should be deleted.
selecting to delete a cell does not necessarily result in less cells in the table. For example, if I insert a default table (2x2), enter text in each cell and then select row1, cell1 and delete the cell -- the data from row1, cell2 is shifted to the left, however, the row1, cell2 is still there

If the "Remove entire cell" preference is checked, the Delete key should delete the TD and other cells should appear to be shuffled over. If the "Maintain table layout peference..." is checked, an empty cell should be added after the cell deletion is finished. This seems to be a real bug -- I think Joe already has bugs on deleting and table issues.

Is that pref only supposed to be for cell selection mode? The bug looks invalid to me. Why would delete nuke a cell if you weren't in cell selection mode?
joe's cprrect, if the text is selected, it will just delte the text, to use the pref correctly, you would have to select the cell and then select delte.
