This happens on Mac too, changing platform to all.

While the issue is cosmetic in nature, it is a fairly important bug with respect to Flash since it results in an incorrect and confusing user experience.

It also does not work well on Mac. It changes to "I" but fails to change back to arrow when you leave the text field. Could be two different things.
i see it on mac (just like u mentioned). should I file a new bug?
I have opened bug 156817 specifically to deal with this problem on the Mac.
this is not mozilla issue, mozilla knows nothing about flash text fields, the flash plugin suppose to control the pointer over its content, nothing we can fix here. ns4.x & opera5 has the same behavior.
