For some reason my cursor disappears when I switch from html to Design view. This can be seen on this video (http://www.screencast.com/users/jpchatt/folders/Jing/media/75ce0779-718f-462a-aec8-4d17ec538224). This does not seem to happen in IE however, It only happens in FF.

The second firefox Inconsistency  is that the increase and decrease indent button does not function consistently. The decrease indent button intermittently breaks formatting for adjacent rows as well as the selected row. this can be seen in the following video (http://www.screencast.com/users/jpchatt/folders/Jing/media/9157a318-55a4-43df-9939-c3c668027d02). not sure why this doesnt happen in IE or why it only happens intermittently but it certainly seemed to be a bug.

Has anyone run into similar issues and know how to fix this?

Hi John,

The content area of RadEditor is an editable IFRAME and the cursor problem is a browser bug (a regression) introduced in Firefox 3.6. We found that this issue is logged in this BugZilla report: focus() to an iframe in designmode renders cursor (caret) invisible in FF3.6 only. We hope that it will be fixed by the browser developers soon.

Please, note that RadEditor uses the execCommand method of the browser to fire the Indent / Outdent commands. Each browser has its own implementation of these commands and they behave differently under the different browsers. If you would like I can tell you how to override the Indent and Outdent commands of RadEditor and you can try to implement your own custom commands. Just let me know.

Best regards,
Rumen
