    As some of you might know, unlike English, typing in Arabic should start from the right. Now in browser apps like FireFox and UC browser, the cursor resides on the left no matter which language you're typing in. When typing in Arabic, letters accumulate backwards (I mean like English letters) which can be very annoying when editing or highlighting text. Is there any way to change the typing orientation from left-to-right to right-to-left?

    UC is a Chinese browser, so probably doesn't support much other than Chinese and English, which are both left to right writing. Have you tried Chrome? Also what device have you actually got, and Android version? Like if it's a Chinese device or something, with an older Android version on it? Something like that will not support things like Arabic properly at all.
