I've checked 3 browsers so far:

Firefox, Safari and Opera and it works fine in those 3, the cursor position is placed before the highlighted text.

In IE 6 the cursor position remains around the selected text and is placed where you click your mouse after.

So in my tests on 4 browsers I do see a problem.

I've tried a number of solutions and it appears that there is a browser that exists that causes it to lose the position in the textbox on large inputs. Even attempts to forcefully set the position via JavaScript are un-successful.

In IE it works fine regardless of the text quantity.

Unfortunately there does not appear to be way. I've trying using JS to force firefox to place the cursor at the start of the selected string, but it appears to ignore this :/

Thanks for that info. I've reviewed the code and applied the relevant focus bit to the FUDforum's code.

I've tested it n Firefox 2.0 and it works properly in that browser.
