  1. Focus on a single line editable text field in Firefox.
  2. Type some text.
  3. Press left arrow to move to the last character.
  4. On the braille display, press the routing button for the space after the last character (as if you want to append text to the field).
  5. Expected: The cursor should move to that position.
  6. Actual: The cursor moves to the start of the field.

This happens because you can't move with UNIT_CHARACTER to this position, which is what routing does. This would be fixed if we had a UNIT_OFFSET (which falls back to UNIT_CHARACTER where that isn't possible).

Actually, UNIT_OFFSET doesn't solve this problem, as !OffsetsTextInfo.move limits to text length.

Fixed in 792074e.
