Unable to insert cursor in form fields
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020530 BuildID: 2002053012 On some occasions, I am unable to insert a cursor in a, HTML form field in order to enter data in a form. An example is the search box on www.yahoo.com. When I click on the blank space to enter a search term, the cursor doesn't appear. I am able to right-click on te field and past text into the search box. The problem seems to occur more often when a browser window has been open for a while. If I close all open browser windows and restart Mozilla, the problem usually goes away. The issue also sometimes appears in the Web address box at the top of the Window where you enter addresses you want to view. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Start a browser window. Surf around for a while. 2.Go to a page with a form field. Click on the field to place the cursor. 3.See that the cursor isn't there. Actual Results: Sometimes, I was unable to get the cursor in the field box. I had to quit and restart Mozilla. Expected Results: Put the cursor in the field box when I click on it.
WFM with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020530 mouseclick left: can you really not place the cursor or do you have a visibility-problem: cursor is not visible, but when you start to enter text, the types appear in the form field.
i saw this before and is a dup of something. try using a newer mozilla build.
Whiteboard: dup me
Sounds like bug 82534, which was fixed a few days ago. Please test with a recent build before submitting bug reports.
With the latest build (2002062608), the bug does not occur.
Yes, this is almost certainly a duplicate of bug 82534. This happens for me with random form fields (including the URL bar) at random times.
