When the URL box is clicked, the cursor does not always appear right away. This is non-standard behavior as far as text widgets go under Windows. Perfect Reproducing: Click on some HTML widget and watch the cursor blink. Wait until the cursor disappears and then click on the URL box right away. Actual Results: The cursor does not appear right away after the click, but "waits" until the next time it's supposed to blink. Expected Results: The cursor should appear right away after the click. Otherwise, the user may be confused whether or not the text box actually recieved focus and may repeatedly click on it until the cursor appears (aggravation).
Rewriting summary to indicate that the problem is the caret, not the cursor. ->xpapps, since this works in other text fields. confirming.
Doh! really xpapps...
Since Don has left, Vishy is taking his bugs in bulk, pending reassignment. thanks, Vishy
This is a caret timing issue.

move to mozilla1.0
From the dup I filed: this happens in all XUL text fields in Modern, but doesn't happen in Classic or in HTML forms.
if this is a theme issue, should this go to hewitt?
there is no way a caret problem is a themes issue
this is a caret draw issue i think.

Bulk move of mozilla1.0 bugs to mozilla.1.0.1. I will try to pull some of these back in if I can.
Is this still an issue in current trunk builds?
Martin, I just tested it with  and it is still a problem. It seems that there is a "caret on" flag that is not getting reset to "on" upon clicking. Just to clarify -- this is the way native Windows widgets work. I just re-confirmed with Wordpad, IE6, Notepad, and Microsoft Word. This is also the way INPUT and TEXTAREA widgets appear to work within the HTML canvas.
