tested with 2002050908 (i'll say is topemebd be cause of google) is there and is confusing. you can type though, the text appears but is not obvious. i saw this before but was hard to reproduce. on googles page is there 100% but only the first time.
Reassigning to Kin.
I also see this occur randomly....there are no steps to be able to reproduce it consistently. I will launch Mozilla, and go to Yahoo! Mail and will not have a cursor to enter my username and password. This also occurs on a couple of other sites that I use. In fact, I have seen this problem since pre 0.9.5. The only way to get the cursor in a text box is by shutting down Moz and restarting. I am using WinXP with 512MB ram.
I don't see this bug at google.com with build 2002091016 on Linux. But when an input field's text is right-aligned, the cursor definitely is missing (until you start typing).
