With nightly just updated from HG, if you forward a message inline the cursor starts at the end of the text in the forward compose window. With TB 11 it is positioned at the beginning, above the forward, as it's supposed to be.
This bug is now in the Thunderbird 13 beta. It's a regression. Surely it needs to be fixed before it gets shipped? Is somebody looking at it?
Joe, do you have a version 11 or 12 to compare? It does start at the end with current nightly.
I have an oldish V11 handy here: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:11.0a1) Gecko/20111125 Thunderbird/11.0a1 Works as expected on tabbing into the body. Cursor at the top. My guess is this is a Editor core change though. I can test further this evening.
Created attachment 620304 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v1 This regression got introduced when Filelink landed, because we wanted to wrap inline forwards in a DIV to make inserting URLs sane. It looks like our logic for setting the selection was out of order. This patch fixes that, and I've added a regression test.
(This bug affects TB 13+)
Forward wants to end up with the cursor in the To: field, doesn't it, so this bug is really about where the cursor will go after you tab out of the To: field. In any case, this does fix it, thx!
