Yes, and it is why I have not yet migrated to using Mozilla or Netscape 7
for my E-mail client. I still have it on Mozilla 1.7a, so it has not gone
away as of then. However, I have not yet used it on the build 70 version.
I am hoping someone within Sun has fixed this for the version bundled with
The bug seems to be that a left cursor moves to the correct position, but
in the first line of the paragraph you are in. At least for the first time
you use the left arrow. Right arrow might jump to the last line, not sure,
since I mostly use the left arrow key. Up and down keys do not have any
problems. This can also show up in filling out text boxes on a web page.
I have no problem with the same versions on, ahem, other operating platforms
shall we say?
