Description David Timms 2008-04-29 12:18:23 UTC
Description of problem:
When entering a bug in bz, noticed that the cursor is not visible

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
random, seen twice.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. view a bugzilla bug
2. click in a text field.
3. start entering text
4. move left, right, up , down, to a different text field
5. restart browser
Actual results:
2> cursor | does not appear.
3> cursor does not appear.
4> cursor is still not visible.
5> the cursor is now OK.

Expected results:
The cursor is a good technical advance introduced in the ?70's.

Additional info:
If you keep count, you can imagine where the cursor is, ie the insertion point
is moved as the keyboard arrows, home, end are used.

Hmm, this is a weird bug, we haven't got AFAIK any other bug about this. Have
you seen it in action lately with the upgraded Firefox?

If yes, please, could we get output of the command

	rpm -qa *xulrun* *firefox* *mozilla* *flash* *plugin*

and given that this bug looks suspiciously like an issue with the Xorg, please
attach also your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log file
(/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

I haven't noticed it for at least a month, but can't remember exactly when
{which site}. I only updated to firefox-3.0.1-1.fc9.i386 today, and it isn't
happening in the fedora wiki or bugzilla. I'll keep a look out for it.

Let's put NEEDINFO here, if you won't be able to come with enough information to
let me reproduce it in a month, I will close it and hope that it has been
already resolved.

Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to investigate the issue further, and we have not received feedback to the information we have requested above, we will assume the problem was not reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the reporter's distribution.

Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional information.
