If there is still a problem,

Start Firefox using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

While you are in Troubleshoot(Safe) mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

Wow, that's cool. One time.

It sounds as though the editor has gotten confused about your text direction and switched it from left-to-right to right-to-left. I don't know whether there is a keyboard shortcut or Facebook preference for that.

Ctrl+Shift+X will switch the text alignment between the left side and right side of an editing control, but I don't think it changes the text direction -- but I haven't tested in Facebook.
