20021008 - winxp

this is like a user interface issue.

but I'm sure everyone would want this since Microsoft have always been doing it
- they must be right ;)

basically, when typing in the url bar or a password prompt (mail), the caret is
not visible. Until you stop typing.

It would be a good idea to have it stay on during typing (especially at a
password prompt or something similar).

-- text areas on website are fine.

i'm not sure whether this is related.

according to the summary, bug 59546 is about the caret not appearing instantly
when clicking on a text field.

this bug is about the caret not appearing when typing.

this is definitly a timing issue as i've learnt by...

1. delete everything in url box
2. make sure focus is in the url box (caret is blinking)
3. press and hold space bar.

at first it appears the caret completely dissapears. but then you notice it
faintly bliking. -- this should NOT happen.

When typing, the caret should ALWAYS be visible -- the timer should stop.

I now believe the same thing is happening on web forms.
