I tested it on the stable system for errata : s390x-4as.z900.redhat.com.
Comment 2 Radek Bíba 2006-12-19 03:33:55 EST
Happens also in Seamonkey (textareas) and Thunderbird (e.g. message composer).

Please also note that Home and Page Up keys move the cursor left, and End and
Page Down keys move it right. Tested on s390x using vnc.

Since this bugzilla report was filed, we have seriously upgraded Gecko-related
packages, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this
problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their
distribution available.

Please, confirm to us that this bug is reproducible on the latest upgrade of the
supported distribution (that's RHEL, or Fedora 7, 8, and Rawhide).

Setting the bug to NEEDINFO. If I won't get confirmation of reproducability in
30 days, the bug will be closed as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.

[This is mass-changing of bugs which seem to be too old and irrelevant anymore;
we are sorry, if this bug should not be incldued.]

No, this bug wasn't fixed automagically... I still see this behavior with
Comment 5 Radek Bíba 2009-03-09 11:43:15 EDT
I don't see this anymore with Firefox 3, which has been in RHEL 4 for almost a year now. Satya, can you have a look too?
(I still see this with 1.x seamonkey and thunderbird, FWIW)
