Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 227269
Cursor in <textarea> does not move back
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:56 EST
Description of problem:
When entering text in formular fields (e.g. like bugzilla comments),
the cursor can not be moved with cursor keys. With previous version
(18.104.22.168-1), it worked fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. write some text in the bugzilla textbox
2. press cursor-left key
Cursor does not move, but new characters will be written at the correct position
Cursor moves one char back
Same here and I have to say it is very annoying (please increase Severity for
Visual caret does not reflect actual caret position except when at begining/end.
All HTML text input elements have this problem along with other TextUI Elements
such as Address-Bar/Search/Googlebar-SearchBox.
Additionally found that Thunderbird has same problem. I haven't checked if
Bugzilla entry for Thunderbird exists.
However it is not Firefox bug only, but bug in one or more of shared dependecies.
Is this pango enabled or disabled?
My enviroment was pango disabled. With pango enabled (it is default) now it
- check enviroment for "MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO=1".
- locate how MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO=1 is set (mine was in profile.d/mozilla.sh) and
comment it out
- unset MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO
- restarted firefox
