There's something funky going on with activate events. Cursors aren't showing up with gtk2 anymore. You have to take focus away from the toplevel and put it back to get the cursor.
Might be, I'm not sure.
I think I'm seeing this as well - it could be the same as (or related to) bug 143777. The problem shows up on Win2K with build 2002051006 (1.0rc2). Load the Bugzilla helper page http://www.mozilla.org/quality/help/bugzilla-helper.html Tab into a multiline text entry block - the cursor will disappear until you move the cursor over a scroll bar. Actually, just the "grabber" in the scroll bar. If you mouse over any other part of the scroll bar, the cursor does not appear.
I have noticed this too in 1.0rc2 and 1.0rc3 on windows XP and windows 2000. I can't reproduce it reliably but sometimes after I open a new window, I'm unable to get a cursor in textfields such as the address bar or the googlebar (from mozdev.org). I click in the text area but no cursor appears. In addition when typing no text appears (maybe its a focus issue?).
Jilles, maybe you're experiencing bug 145567. A workaround for that is to paste a URL into the address bar and press enter; after that, functionality returns.
Is it a dup of bug 153805?
Yeah, I think so. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 153805 ***
