Open Bug 1326900 Opened 6 years ago Updated 5 months ago

Placeholder is displayed above caret in <input> fields, so it may be partially invisible


(Core :: Layout: Form Controls, defect)

>>>   My Info:   Win7_64, Nightly 49, 32bit, ID 20160526082509
1. Enable developer edition theme
2. Click in searchbar (or empty urlbar)

AR:  There's a dot on the text caret. I.e. placeholder inside the input is displayed "above" the caret
ER:  No black dots in caret (!). Placeholder should be drawn below the caret

1. Open url [1]
2. Click in input

AR:  Only the top part of caret is visible
ER:  The whole caret should be visible

 For those how doesn't have perfect vision (no irony, the bug may be hard to sport on url [1]):
 Url [2] is designed (specific colors were set to caret and placeholder) to prove the bug on Firefox.
 Url [3] is designed to prove that there's no bug on GoogleChrome.
