Which Firefox version?

What I tried:

  1. Go to
  2. make sure to be logged in
  3. Go to माझ्या पसंती (Preferences), संपादन and enable last option: यथादृश्यसंपादक कार्यान्वित करा (केवळ मुख्य(लेख) आणि सदस्य नामविश्वात) - this enables VisualEditor
  4. Click cog next to इतर भाषांमध्ये
  5. Under क्षेपन (टायपींग ईनपुट) make sure to choose अक्षरांतरण
  6. Click संपादन (Edit)
  7. Make sure that URL ends with &veaction=edit
  8. Type

Results are weird under Firefox 23.0.1 and Fedora 19 (new lines inserted etc), but typing is not always backwards.

There's code to address this bug in the following patch, which is due to go live by on 13 September 2013:

Please let us know whether it fixes the bug!

(In reply to comment #2)

Did primary testing seems some change of behaviour and different kind of weird aspects . will need more tests and time before confirming.


Automatic Incorrect caret movement has been reported separately as Bug 54424

I suspect that this bug is a special case of that bug, but I may be wrong.

Would it be possible to test against current master? You can use this at - we believe that we may have fixed the
issues (or, at least, changed the behaviour) since you tested it.

Thank you!
