When a single-line textbox has enough content to scroll, and the caret is at the end, the caret is invisible (it should be visible and blinking).  This affects both <input> in web pages and the address bar.

This happens with:
* cmd+right (go to end of line)
* pressing the right arrow key until the end
* typing enough text into an empty textbox to make it start scrolling

Regressed between 2006-12-07 and 2006-12-08 trunk builds.  Regression from bug 344228 or bug 300030?

Moving to Core/Layout (Editor code is not in charge of painting the caret).

Sounds like a dupe of bug 335560 or bug 130530 (they may be dupes of each other as well).

Anyway, see discussions in those bugs.

I don't know if this is related, but when I go to and increase the text size, the cursor appears outside the input box. This is also a regression from bug 300030.
I can't reproduce this in [Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a8pre) Gecko/2007090416 Minefield/3.0a8pre]. I can still reproduce it in [Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070725 Firefox/] in the address bar though. Was it perhaps fixed when bug 335560 was fixed? Can anyone else reproduce this in Minefield?

I don't see it.

I'm going to mark this FIXED, assuming the checkin for bug 335560 fixed it.
