Re: Cursor tracking in thunderbird/firefox?

Because the feature (bug) is in mozilla (including a fresh download - it would be great to check mozilla bugzilla and if necessary file there.
I finally got to test this on a RHEL4 box, and the bug does not exist on a package downloaded from mozilla.com. It *does* exist on FC5 using the same download from mozilla. It also does not appear on the windows platform.

Put a cursor in the middle of a line of text in the middle of a paragraph, and then press the up or down arrow. The cursor will jump to the beginning or end of the next/previous line, rather than remaining in the middle of the line of text like every other application on the system does. This only happens on mozilla apps, but not under windows. Can't currently confirm it on other linuxes.
Is this in the mail reader ?
Only in three pane mode ?
What about when you double click a received mail ?
What if there is less than a screen full of paragraphs ?
Can you grab some example text (something of the web if you like) that causes the problem ? A bug isn't a solvable bug unless it is reproducible by someone else...how else could anyone know what they would need to do to fix ?
The bug was confirmed by others on the list at least a month ago. I gave very simple steps to reproduce the bug, and it's been reproduced by others on the list. Are you saying that you can't reproduce the error? Isn't a single method or reproducing the bug in two different applications sufficient to prove there is a problem somewhere?
