The editor that we use was designed to only work with monospace fonts. I was being stubborn, and insistant that I get the editor to work with a mix of non-fixed and fixed-width fonts. Unfortunately, the editor wouldn't have it and it was causing the floating cursor bug, the drifting cursor bug, and the incorrect tab width problems. I've finally waved the proverbial white flag. But I'm NOT giving up! I'm NOT, I tell you!

Nothing wrong with that. You live on to fight another day. It is also unlikely that you will get complaints from all the programming-savvy people here about having fixed-width fonts. Fixed-width fonts FTW!
N.B.: This also makes the highly criticized live preview a bit more useful!
In my response in this thread when I pasted the code, and started indenting with 4 spaces manually, the offset bug appeared (using IE9). As soon as I manually create and paste an URL it happens too (in IE9). Long live IE... Opera appears working fine.
I had the cursor offset problem an hour or so ago. I started typing this post and noticed that the cursor started having the same problem in this post. I tried re-entering all of the text to see if I could determine where the problem was occurring but I couldn't make it - OK. It happened as soon as the edit window expanded by one line to accomodate the extra text. It gets worse for every new line that gets expanded. I'm using Firefox 13.0.1.
I'm trying to upload a screen cap but when I click on "Files" I got the "Upload Attachments" area but no actual area to specify a file. I'll try to save, then add an attachement with an Edit.
It doesn't show up in the screen cap, but the cursor is actually between "b" and "ut" on the last line.
I tried to reproduce the problem in Internet Explorer 10 and couldn't. It happens only in FireFox. But it happens in FireFox consistently. If I type until I fill up the initial edit window everything is fine. As soon as I type the final character in the initial window things go funny. If you think it would help narrow down the problem you are welcome to remote in with TeamViewer and see for yourself.
Just happened to me again. I was half way typing a response to a question when the cursor moved to the wrong location in the edit box. The only way I could regain control was to save what I had typed then edit the post.
