[Keyboard]A cursor is not displayed on the head of a string by set
[steps to reproduce] Set "0" to "cursor" of setComposition(DOMString text, optional long cursor), InputContext InputContext.setComposition(text, 0); * Refer to video. [actual results] Seemingly a cursor is displayed on the end of a string. It is not displayed on the head of it. [expected results] A cursor is displayed on the head of a string. Therefore it suggests an opportunity to a user for inputting a character from the head of the string.
Cursor_1_FxOS(bug).mp4 When "0" is set to "cursor" of "setComposition", a cursor moves to the end of a string. Cursor_2_Android(expected).mp4 Expected result: When Android IME sets cursor location "0", a cursor locates the head of a string. Both of above cases, you can input a letter from the head of a string. However a blinking cursor location of "Cursor_1_FxOS(bug).mp4" is different from the expected result "Cursor_2_Android(expected).mp4".
http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/dom/inputmethod/MozKeyboard.js#577 > 577 cursor: cursor || text.length, Looks like this a simple mistake. If cursor is 0, the text.length is used unexpectedly. We should avoid a case of |cursor === 0|.

Yuan, could you take a look? See comment 3.
Thank you for your reply. We have confirmed the expected result after fixing the place pointed out with local environment. We are waiting for a fixed source file in the future.

It is a mistake. When cursor is not passed, we use the text length as cursor value. When cursor is passed, even 0 value, we should use the passed value, but never the text length.
