minor text editing problems in Firefox

  1. Two small problems I noticed while using Firefox:

    1. On boards that use prepared UBB-Tags (or something like that) whenever I click one of them it's inserted at the very end of the reply and not behind the cursor, like it should.

    2. When the end of a line is reached, pressing space key doesn't produce any actual spacing...the cursor is still next to the last typed letter, which means you can't really see whether you spaced or I said, it's minor, but seems to be a Firefox problem (and probably Mozilla, too, for that matter).

    Is there a way to fix those, yet?

    I found that if you click twice at the cursor-position, it will insert at that position.
    As to spaces, the TS board ignores more than 1 space anyway, so pressing an extra space for good measure does not interfere. While you are typing, spaces do 'show' unless at the very end of the message window. Once submitted, as said, anything over 1 space will be suppressed.
    That's not a Firefox problem (or any browser for that matter).

    Hm, but the spacing is different on some boards.
    I will try what you suggested about #1, thanks!

    Doesn't work behind a typed line, because it ighlights the last typed symbol...
    But it works in a blank line, that's a start. :grinthumb
