trouble highlighting text with the mouse after it has been right or centered aligned
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (Win98; U) BuildID: 20010726 While formating text I ran into a problem trying to select either the first or last line of paragraphs that were right aligned, and problems highlighting the top line of paragraphs that were center aligned. This does not seem to effect large sentences. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open composer 2.type in "line 1" hit enter, type in "line 2" hit enter, and type in "line 3" and hit enter. 3.Select all of the text and choose center align. 4.deselect the text and try to reselect all of the text using the mouse. 5. Try the above steps using the right alignment for the three lines. Actual Results: The text was hard to highlight while all lines were centered aligned, had to drag the mouse to the top far left corner in order to select "line 1". "Line 1" and "line 3" were hard to highlight with the mouse when the text was right aligned. Once again I had to drag the mouse to the top left of the screen, selecting from "line 3" up to "line 1". and had to drag the mouse to the bottom right in order to select the text from "line 1" down to "line 3" Expected Results: The text should be easy to highlight. It works fine when it is full justified or left aligned.
Confirming it with win98 Build 2001082203 Clicking on the left side of left aligned text moves the caret to the beggining of the line, but if the text is centered or right aligned then the caret is placed at the end of the line and so this line isn't selected. Marking as new.
