Caret irregularly moves when the text area automatically expands in Translate extension
Open, LowPublic


When editing a large chunk of texts in the Translate extension, the caret sometimes irregularly moves to the top left corner. This forces me to move back the caret and re-enter the cancelled part of the text.

The condition under which this happens seems to be:

  • when using Japanese input methods
  • when editing a large chunk of texts
  • when the text area automatically expands as I almost fill it

This happened on the installations the Translate extention on and
My environment is IBus Ubuntu Linux 11.10.

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal
Whiteboard: tux-fixed

Firefox 17.0 reproduced this bug on Meta's current installation. Although I was on an older version of it when I initially reported this, the problem still persists with 17.0.

Chromium (20.0.1132.47 Ubuntu 12.04 (144678)) doesn't seem to have this problem. In a couple of trials with entering a large chunk of Japanese texts, it didn't happen.
