Is this different from this bug fix?

Holding backspace may delete text both in front of and behind the cursor (bug 770291)

There's a chance a fix might be on Aurora. Try out Aurora (http://aurora.mozilla.org) for Android and report back here. Otherwise, you can try out Nightly too (http://nightly.mozilla.org); hopefully either contain a fix.
