Description of problem:
The left and right cursor keys do not bahave as expected in firefox, i.e. they do not move the cursor by only one space - sometimes they move it 1 space, sometimes many more.
This does not appear to happen in gnome
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.loging to EL4 kde
3.go to http://www.google.co.uk and click in the address bar
4.use the cursor keys and see the wacky behabiour.
Actual Results: cursr moves by more than 1 character
Expected Results: cursor keys move cursor by 1 character
seems that the problem does not occur under gnome.
until this is fixed I seem to be forced back to mozilla. What a shame.
in case it is not clear (as the component seems to be mozilla) this problem only
occurs in firefox - not mozilla.
I was seeing this problem as well (but in GNOME) and as best as I can tell,
updating to firefox-1.0-13.EL4 resolves this problem. That version is currently
in testing for release in a future update, so I'm throwing this in "modified."
yes - it is also happening for me in gnome..... (i was mistakenly staring
mozilla in gnome.)
look forward to the update.
Guys - can I download the new rpm from somewhere to test?
seems fixed in the current security release 1.01
