Comment 1 Mario Curcija 2007-02-06 05:29:53 EST
Same here and I have to say it is very annoying (please increase Severity for
this one). 

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. 

Best regards,

Is this pango enabled or disabled?
Comment 3 Mario Curcija 2007-02-06 10:48:02 EST
My enviroment was pango disabled. With pango enabled (it is default) now it
works fine.  
- 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 
- restarted firefox
