    just starting using ff after using opera for a real long time and I actually like it a lot. only problem I have is if I click where the red dot is my cursor doesn't move there automatically like it did in opera :dunno:

    It just stays where the arrow is until I have to hit the down arrow on my keyboard. basically if I clicked on the area where the red dot is and started typing, the words would appear where the red arrow is and not below the actual quote.


    anybody know why the hell it just doesn't move to where I click?! it used to in Opera and in IE and but not FF :hs:

    It doesn't move there because there's no text on that line. It will only move the cursor if there's text on the line you clicked on. Not its greatest feature, but there's your explanation.

    I like Firefox because even if Opera is better, Firefox is infinitely flexible. Being open-source is nice too.

    Opera is infinitely flexible. It's got more built-in and it supports add-ons. Firefox has less and also supports add-ons. Because more is built into opera, there is much better quality control while still allowing you to add more.

    Firefox is a piece of shit compared to the awesomeness of Opera.

    I hate the way firefox does that too.

    But you will find that if you click right next to the right side of [/quote] that it will put the cursor there.
    And yeah, it's really lame that it doesn't put it to the far left of whichever row you click the mouse in.

    Give it a week to see if it's really that big of a deal.

    I had the exact opposite experience. Firefox is fast as hell on my machine but Opera is slow as balls and freezes up if I open more than like 4 or 5 tabs.

    well, get the cursor into the window and just press ctrl-end.
