Support » Plugin: Better File Editor » Cursor position off by 12 characters in 2.1.2

  • Hi, Bryan, and thanks so much for this great plugin. I wouldn’t swear to different behavior in 2.1, but what I’m seeing under SeaMonkey 2.22 and Firefox 25 on openSUSE 12.3 and under SeaMonkey 2.7.2 on OS/2 is that the cursor, when positioned anywhere along a given line (unless the line is blank) results in text being entered 12 characters to the left. Accordingly, when scrolling to the end of a given line, the I-beam ends up 12 characters beyond the last character on that line.

    I’ve seen this under WP 3.8 with and without Classic Admin enabled. Perhaps it’s another plugin causing the issue; I’ll check that and will follow up. I haven’t looked at the javascript here to see anything obvious.

    Looks alright in Firefox 26 on my end, but I don’t have a box (or VM) with openSUSE on it to test with.

    I’ll see if I can get something up and running to test in VirtualBox when I have the time, but it’d be great to hear if you’re able to reproduce this with other plugins disabled if you’re able to, or if it’s also a problem in other browsers like Chrome for example.

    Chances are pretty slim that it’s something that only shows up in openSUSE and OS/2 and not other linux distros.

    Sorry for the false alarm, Bryan!

    The unexpected conflict was with Admin renamer extended. It’s an older plugin, and really only needed once to rename the admin user account, after which it may be disabled or uninstalled.

    I would have expected one of the syntax highlighter plugins or editor enhancements I have, but of all things, that one turned out to be the culprit. 🙂

    Marking this resolved.

    Cheers, and thanks again for a really nice and useful plugin!
