Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load the test code
2. Click on the text input field, and type something.
3. Take a look :-(

Actual Results:  
-The cursor is always invisible.
-Doesn't work under a recent version of firefox under windows too.

Expected Results:  
- Makes the cursor visible
Your fixed position <div> covers the input box, so it doesn't get mouse
events (or a cursor).

I don't know why it is still possible to type into it; nor whether this is
the expected behaviour; but it is not inxeplicable.
Not a CSS issue.  This is basically bug 167801....

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

Emmanuel Engelhart, why are you reopening this bug? bz, a core developer, said in comment 2 that this is a dup of bug 167801. If you read that bug, you'll see that it has been fixed, but of course not in 1.5.x, nor will it be fixed in the upcoming 2.0, but only on trunk, i.e. 3.0. So, testing with 1.5.0.7 is irrelevant, please test against a trunk build as mentioned in bug 167801 comment 56.
